A Session in a Bunker (Chebucto Head, Nova Scotia)

Digital infrared original
My natural inclination when working with architecture is to work with symmetrical, formal compositions; in this case, after making some straight-on photographs, I tried to work against my first approach, and moved the camera off-center. Using an ultra-wide lens I was able to make this image, which puts the initial composition (formal and straight-on) to shame.

Bianca asked if we could work with the hold in the wall, next to the graffiti of the bee; after some experimentation, I found this back-on pose worked well, and after some careful adjustment of the camera position, I was able to realize the final photograph.

At the close of the session, I made some portraits of Bianca through this window, and on a whim, I asked her to face away from me, and made some images, including this striking one of her arms out against the sides of the windows.
