Description Joyful Joyful... Wayne Moran 2007This is the pipe organ from the Basilica of Saint Mary in Minneapolis MN. The way the image turned out makes me hear in my head the song Joyful, Joyful We Adore Thee, the poem written by Henry van Dyke that is set to the famous 'Ode to Joy' melody of the final movement of Ludwig van Beethoven's final symphony, Symphony No. 9.
Wayne Moran, Minneapolis Member Since January 2008 Artist Statement As a Minnesota based photographer and artist, Wayne focuses his skills and energies on landscapes, cityscapes, architectural, nature and portrait photography.
His best work comes from images first painted in his mind. He mulls over a prospective image for weeks or months, seeing it from different angles and perspectives, then finally deciding what to capture, he takes action. The result is images that deeply touch a person's emotions and powerfully evoke memories and dreams.
His images are used commercially by companies and organizations ranging from Financial Services firms, mom and pop Ice Cream shops and The Basilica of St Mary. The images are used to communicate their shared vision and values. Book, magazine and calendar publishers have featured his images in their publications and on their covers. His photographs also grace and enhance the décor of many fine homes.
