Photograph Beautiful and Historic Metalwork for G. Krug & Son Ironworks Museum

  • G. Krug & Son Ironworks Museum 415 West Saratoga Street Baltimore, MD 21201 (map)

G. Krug & Son Ironworks Museum is committed to preserve and interpret the history of America's oldest functioning ironworks.

G. Krug & Son has fabricated, restored, and installed metalwork on and in numerous buildings, landmarks, and institutions, as well as provided metalwork for parks, cemeteries, and other public areas.  The task of the photographer would be to find these projects, and document them through photography.  This project requires possession of a camera, as well as a means to transfer photographs digitally, and a passion for exploration and visiting new places.  We are looking for someone to provide standard photographs for documentation purposes, however, any artistic interpretation of the work is welcome and encouraged after the standard documentation.  Photographs will be utilized by the museum for documenting works, and with consent of the photographer, producing exhibits, supplementing educational resources and programming, and in advertising and marketing.  Credit will be given to the photographer in each case.  Our goal is to provide a photographer/community member with the opportunity to explore Maryland, Washington D.C., and Virginia, documenting pieces of metalwork, and spreading the results of his or her work through our institution and networks.  An optional component to this opportunity is to create a traveling exhibition with the photographer(s) based on the photographs taken for this project.
