Urban Vision Becomes Artistic Reality With Architectural Photographer

AKRON, OHIO –Artist David Bryan Lile captures energy, color and possibilities, with photographic images of ever changing urban core environments.  His pulsating, surreal colors cause you to visually savor electric meters, rusted pipes, ever changing historical buildings and often overlooked urban elements.


Recently, Lile’s “Window’s Project” installed 50 vibrant artistic urban images in four vacant, Downtown Akron windowed storefronts, next to the fabled Akron Civic Theater, a Registered American Historic Landmark. This modern makeover, allowed each viewer to see the potential and beauty, not only within the photograph, but the original structure. Setting this unique urban artwork inside the original storefront windows brought new life to often overlooked architectural details.


The collaborative “Window’s Project” is headed by a group of young professionals within the Downtown Akron Partnership who are working to bring back a thriving civic life to the heart of Akron.


During Lile’s photographic journey, he embraced the term …”Artistic Archival Documentation,” as a creatively artistic method to preserve images of buildings, landmarks and other urban elements that he often later discovered, were torn down or removed.  This “Window Project” gives the Akron city scape a modern day makeover, allowing the audience to view the potential and beauty within the artistic exhibit image, uniquely framed by the original building structure.


“The beauty of The Windows Project is its wide appeal,” said Lile. “During the installation, everyone from executives to construction workers stopped by to talk about the photographs and take a closer look.  Their enthusiasm continues to stoke my desire to capture the life of every city that I have an opportunity to visit and to breathe new life into the urban environment with color and visual energy.”


“Through the application of color and texture, I transform gritty urban scenes into vibrant expressions, of life, beauty and hope,” Lile said. “My intent is to engage and inspire the viewer to perceive energy among the commonplace, hopefulness among despondency and grace among the commonality of everyday life.”
