Chris Fiegel Photography is both a business and online gallery that specializes in photography and design. We strive to capture the moments of life and bring our clients’ visions to reality through multiple forms of art and design. Chris Fiegel, founder and chief photographer of Chris Fiegel Photography, has always looked to seize the day and capture the moments of life that can often seem fleeting. He has worked to cultivate a diverse portfolio, which includes scenes of mountainous landscapes, portraits and headshots, and event photography, since he was first gifted a camera at 13 years old. Chris has professionally worked with several clients to achieve their vision through both photography and design projects. For Chris, an occasional hobby in his adolescence quickly evolved into a passion, and he continues to make it his mission to deliver a standard of excellence through both his personal and professional projects. Chris is the exclusive photographer of All Things Brielle, a division of Bell Creek Publishing and his sister’s (pictured above) current enterprise, and, currently, he is based out of Bethlehem, PA in the United States. Continuing his pursuits, he wants to sincerely thank his family, friends, and photographer community for their unwavering support as he moves forward, striving to create a better, brighter future.

According to United Press International, "Controlled Demolition Inc., a 72-year-old Maryland company, brought down the building at an estimated estimated of $575,000." For several years leading up to the implosion, controversy and debate dominated the discussion about the future of Martin Tower due, in part, to financial, economic, and practical implications of the various options.

Nicole Radzievich of The Morning Call published an article about the "Six things you might not know about Martin Tower;" she writes, "When Martin Tower was opened, Bethlehem Steel was the second largest steel producer in the world and the 14th largest industrial corporation in America. In 1973, the first full year the Tower was occupied, Bethlehem Steel set a company record, producing 22.3 million tons of raw steel and shipping 16.3 million tons of finished steel. It made a $207 million profit that year, and exceeded that the following year."

For many locals, Martin Tower acted as a duality of sorts: a symbol of hope and a reminder of decay. For some, the towering walls and architectural feats of the building reflected the undeniable influence of industry and commerce from an era that spans just a few generations back in a town that became a major player in world trade and industrial development; for others, the building was a reminder of the abrupt, destructive nature of greed and the cracks in the armor, so to speak, of a seemingly indestructible, unstoppable force, born at the forefront of industrial revolution in a growing nation.

There are many perspectives and stories - good, bad, and ugly - to be told, and there's so much more to tell, but, for now, we say farewell to Martin Tower: a relic of human endeavor that, through change and time, stood tall until its anticipated collapse to rest in history.

Thanks for reading these posts, and I hope you enjoyed this short series about Martin Tower. It was a memorable day, and I'm grateful I got the chance to capture the moments with the people, both near and far, who sought similar stories to tell.

The Martin Tower implosion was a spectacle for many in the Lehigh Valley and beyond, with individuals and families coming from all over, eagerly awaiting the historic event, and the opportunity to capture the explosive (pun intended) moment spurred many photographers, filmmakers, journalists, and people alike to take to the rooftops, parks, and streets in order to get a view.

With the notable efforts of police, fire, emergency personnel, city officials, and private contractors to secure the site and ensure absolute safety, the implosion safely proceeded with multiple level charges being set off, causing the building to split and collapse in on itself within approximately 20 seconds. Cheers, awe, and memories were shared by many across the valley, and several local restaurants and pubs opened early to let visitors and locals enjoy a morning of celebration as a piece of architectural notoriety was laid to rest in intriguing style.

In somewhat of an ode to the history, I will be posting some photos of Martin Tower, in addition to the photos of the implosion, this week with a couple of interesting facts and tidbits about the structure and people who came and went through the famed doors of the Bethlehem Steel headquarters.

First up, the basics: Martin Tower was first under construction in 1969, completed in 1972, and served as the corporate headquarters for Bethlehem Steel. It was demolished on May 19, 2019.
