  • As part of the 2013 Duwamish Artist Residency, we spent two days in the old/decommissioned power plant in the Georgetown neighborhood of Seattle. The light inside this place was beautiful, and at times ghostly and at others it was like being inside a Vermeer painting.
     
    A number of photos I made during the two days in the power plant, were done so with a digitial pinhole camera.  I made a pinhole lens for my dslr with an extra body cap. which is a very easy hack.  It was interesting mixing and old form of photography (pinhole) with modern techology (digital). The results were moody and ghostly images that I feel captured the atmosphere of the building.
