My first win in a juried show


This is my first win in a juried show. The show was the Denver Architecture Foundation‘s Y/OUR Denver show, which is hosted by The Colorado Photographic Arts Center. The category was best interior.

This image was made in 2015 at the old Denver Central Catholic High School. The school had been closed for more than a decade and was then being used as Artist spaces. I was there attending a workshop by our Christopher James and saw this composition as I was packing up to leave. The building has since been sold to a developer who plans to convert it to condos.

I liked the multiple spaces, both interior and exterior within the frame. This image was made on 120 size Kodak TMAX 400 film, and shot using a Mamiya 6 with a 50mm wide angle lens. I prefer using film to capture night time shots because of its unique response to light and dark.
