Eastern State Penitentiary

Comments Off on Eastern State Penitentiary

I remember viewing a photographer’s portfolio of Eastern State Penitentiary about a year ago and just loved the images. I finally had an opportunity to go to Philadelphia since I was invited to cover Small Boutique Fashion Week in New York once again and thought for the extra 1.5hr drive, it would be well worth it. Subsequently I spent a good four hours shooting inside the penitentiary, amazed by the cells which were left pretty much untouched since they shut down operation over 40 years ago. Technically, although I had several lenses and a couple of camera bodies with me for the trip, I used my 35mm F2 and Nikon D700 exclusively.
