Fox Valley area based Marian Kraus Photography and State Street Salvage are joining a growing number of vintage, salvage and modernist-inspired furniture and home accessory stores

 

July 30, 2010 – St. Charles, IL Tasteful shopping in Chicago’s Grand Avenue Design District, a former industrial hub that has blossomed into a vintage, salvage and modernist – inspired furniture destination, will become even more exciting and worth a visit when State Street Salvage’s owners Kevin Hanley and Steve Peterson and Marian Kraus of Marian Kraus Photography will open doors to the public at the beginning of August 2010.

The idea to combine the visionary talents of all three artists and to join forces was born out of the desire to provide shoppers and members of the interior design trade with a “one stop shop” destination, allowing them to find and procure very unique, functional and artistic furniture, fine art photography as well as home and garden accessories. In their own words: “By conveying the feeling, energy as well as spirit of our artistic visions and designs, our desire is to inspire our clients to transform their living and working spaces into meaningful and healing environments. Ultimately however, we want to contribute to the greater good of all.”

The space is located in an airy, open, 15’ high ceiling 2,000 sq. ft. showroom at 2248 West Grand Avenue in Chicago, IL. It is situated amidst other well recognized designer showrooms such as Buckingham Interiors & Design, Sentimental Gardens, European Furniture Warehouse, Salvage One, Post 27, MCM Grand and UberModern.

About State Street Salvage:

Kevin Hanley initially spent 15 years working in the clothing business, gathering a wide array of expertise and experiences. He then joined his family’s antiques and interiors business, Les Tissus Colbert and honed his varied business and design skills. Kevin’s constant drive and search for items that were creative, functional and unique, coupled with his extensive travels throughout Europe, led to the creation of State Street Salvage.

Steve Peterson has an extensive background in woodworking, which ranges from building custom furniture to restoring the most intricate antiques. His career started at the age of 12 which led him to become an artistic and accomplished woodworker and craftsman.

Through State Street Salvage, Steve and Kevin have been able to combine their talents of reinventing and repurposing unique and functional furniture for homes and to bring that to an otherwise boring marketplace. From side tables, wine racks and coffee tables to distinctive kitchen islands and serving pieces, lamps and chairs, State Street Salvage combines artistry and functionality in every piece they create.

[wpspoiler name=”Marian Kraus Photography Offers Tips on How to Take Better Photographs on Its New Weblog – 02/18/10″]

According to artist and photographer Marian Kraus: “While there are thousands of books published on photography, the aim of my blog is to share my experience, strength and hope with the readership. One of the aspects of doing this is to periodically post new tips, techniques and insights on how to create fulfilling and aesthetically pleasing photographs. These insights and tips are based on my own experience of being a successful professional photographer”.

The most recently added blog “Tips on how to take better pictures of Interiors” http://mariankraus.com/2010/02/05/tips-on-how-to-take-better-pictures-of-interiors/ focuses on photo tips that might be taken into consideration when taking pictures of interiors. These may prove helpful to people who want to take photos of interiors to show to friends and family and they may also serve real estate agents, interior designers, architects and the like who want to visually document a non high profile offering or creation of theirs.

For the high profile jobs that may find use in marketing materials, publications, award submissions, brochures and the like, Kraus recommends the hire of a professional architectural photographer. In his own words: “If you do not want to spend all the time and effort in creating a satisfactory or outstanding photograph, hire a professional architectural photographer. Superb architectural photography requires the consideration of seemingly countless technical as well as artistic and aesthetic aspects which the pros have mastered over the years of being in business”.

While Marian Kraus’s photo tips are based on his own self taught experience, they are primarily aimed at the recreational and novice photographer. His next post in this series will highlight some more of the general photography aspects that may be helpful when making photographs of landscape and nature subjects.

[wpspoiler name=”Marian Kraus Photography Expands McKesson Corporation’s New State-of-the-Art Chicago Facility’s Fine Art Photography Collection – 09/30/09″]

The Fine Art Photography division of Marian Kraus Photography of St. Charles, IL was recently, once again, rewarded with the purchase of over 40 of Marian Kraus’ original photographs to be used for the decoration of interior corporate office spaces. This time his photographs were chosen by McKesson Corporation to decorate the walls of the office portion of their newly built State of the Art Distribution Center outside of Chicago, IL.

This recent project constitutes one of numerous purchases of Kraus’s fine art photography related to the corporate and health care industries. In recent years his work has been chosen for the collections of Edward Hospital in Naperville and Hinsdale Hospital, both in Illinois. In addition to health care facilities and corporate offices, his fine art photography is regularly chosen for the beautification of hotels, banks and private residences by interior design professionals and the public at large.

Founded over 175 years ago, McKesson Corporation is the nation’s oldest and largest health care services company. In addition to being the largest pharmaceutical distributor in North America, McKesson is also the nation’s leading health care IT company with software and hardware technology installed in more than 70% of the nation’s hospitals that have more than 200 beds. McKesson is ranked number 15th on the Fortune 500.

U.S. Pharmaceutical employees from across the country were hard at work preparing for the June 2009 opening of McKesson’s new State of the Art “Chicagoland” distribution center in Aurora, IL. The new distribution center replaced the nearby Carol Stream facility that was built in 1967. The new facility boasts 280,000 sq. ft. of space on the main floor and an additional 60,000 sq. ft of floor space on a second-story mezzanine. It serves more than 1,500 customers in Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin and Michigan and houses about 160 employees as well as 4 miles of conveyor belts of a highly sophisticated distribution framework.

With over three years of planning and construction, the facility is McKesson’s first distribution center to be certified by the United States Green Building Council for its use of recycled building materials, natural landscaping, motion-controlled lighting, access to public transportation and parking for fuel-efficient vehicles.

The new distribution center is a showcase for technology designed to improve the efficiency of warehouse operations. It includes two A-frame units, which enable automated picking of fast-moving products. It is also the first McKesson DC to use a “Pick-to-Light” system, which guides order fillers down the line by lighting the appropriate product shelves which ultimately will increase efficiency.

The interior design project encompasses Marian Kraus’ soothing and inspiring photography of nature themes from various locations as well as Chicago related architectural imagery. The project also included a custom photography assignment of two of the local pharmacies which distribute many of the McKesson related products. Kraus was commissioned by his client to capture the architectural interiors and exteriors as well as unique service oriented feel of these pharmacies. The resulting varied mix of images created a fertile ground for a remarkable and distinctive arrangement of collages.

The newly built facility features his work throughout some of the common areas, hallway, board room, large office and meeting place. McKesson had acquired Kraus’ work previously and has now added substantially to their existing collection.

[wpspoiler name=”Marian Kraus Photography Launches New Book: Inspirationals – A Collection of Photography & Writings – 8/29/09″]

In his premier publication, Inspirationals – A Collection of Photography & Writings, internationally renowned photographer Marian Kraus expresses his stunning fine art photography and moving insights.  His objective, to “capture and convey the interconnectedness of all that is in and around us in its most essential and purest form,” is eloquently and elegantly executed. According to the author and artist, Inspirationals “is meant to bring the reader closer to the fragile state of our planet and the ever increasing need for such elementary qualities as peace, compassion, truth, love, respect and forgiveness.” The work in his book provides an opportunity for a person to see the simplicity, richness and healing beauty of our natural environment.

As the title suggests, the authors’ intention is to let the book be a vehicle of inspiration and to provoke feelings, emotions and compassionate considerations toward oneself, others as well as the environment we live in. The books’ easily portable size of 8 x 8” allows it to be conveniently viewed whenever a state of contemplative reflection is sought by the reader.

The nature images contained in Inspirationals were carefully chosen from Marian Kraus’ journeys across the globe over the past 15 years. Kraus who grew up in Central Europe and spent 20 years of his life with an international industrial conglomerate, left his corporate career in 1999 in order to pursue his dream of being a full time artist and photographer. Inspirationals contains many succinct insights and observations Kraus gathered along the way of “uncovering, discovering and discarding”, and while learning that “if nothing changes, nothing changes”. Underlying messages such as: “You cannot think your way into better living but instead have to live your way into better thinking” accompany his awe inspiring color photography.

A preview of the book can be obtained by following this link where it is also available for purchase. The self published book is also available on the websites of Amazon as well as Barnes & Noble.

Marian Kraus’ soothing and inspiring fine art photography as displayed in Inspirationals has been chosen for the beautification of corporate offices, hotels, banks, and private residences by interior design professionals and the public at large.

Kraus’ unique photographic approach of nature and architecture themes also finds wide appeal by the architectural and building community. Architects, Luxury Home Builders, Real Estate Developers, Hotels, Landscape Architects, Property Management companies as well as Advertising Agencies and Marketing firms throughout the US hire his services for national and international commercial photography assignments.

[wpspoiler name=”The Clare at Water Tower – Photography by Marian Kraus – 07/08/09″]

The Clare at Water Tower is the first-of-its-kind, high-rise senior living community in Chicago and is thereby one of the tallest residential buildings reserved for seniors anywhere in the world. It was designed Mr. Ralph Johnson, a principal at Perkins + Will, and is the result of a partnership between the Franciscan Sisters and Loyola University to maximize the use of an urban site on Loyola’s downtown campus. Located just one block off of Chicago’s Magnificent Mile, it is situated in the heart of Chicago’s prestigious Gold Coast. The Clare offers both housing for seniors and classroom space for Loyola University.

The first three floors of the 56-story high-rise will house Loyola classrooms which allow Loyola to expand its academic facilities. Forty-one levels featuring 250 independent living units, 3 floors of skilled nursing and 3 floors with 52 units of assisted living are allowing the Franciscan Sisters to fulfill their mission of providing much-needed housing for senior citizens. Other levels include a spa and fitness center and public amenities such as dining, libraries, kitchens and administration space. A model of low-impact use for an urban site, the building’s design maximizes views of Chicago’s Water Tower District and Lake Michigan.

The objective of the architectural photography assignment was to aesthetically reveal the artistry and skill that were brought to the project by the architects and various contractors, one of which was also Chicago based James McHugh Construction Company.

Marian Kraus, a member of the ASMP (American Society of Media Photographers), the AIAP (Association of Independent Architectural Photographers) and NPS (Nikon Professional Services) contributed his proficient and artistic vision as well as technical expertise to photograph the various aforementioned interior areas of The Clare.
