Stoned Room, old Cass Tech High School

Here’s another shot from my circa 2009 exploration of the old Cass Tech High School. They built a new state of the art facility right next to this one, but boarded this school up, contents and all. A truly surreal experience. 8 floors that felt like another world.

With this shot I was playing leading lines. The jumbled rows of desks take your eye to the black board upon which sage words are scrawled. This was a trip of the Bronica SQa and Fuji Neopan Acros. Definitely a wide shot, probably the 50mm lens. This is a scan of a print. With this print I played with some edge diffusion to help give it some extra altered-consciousness feeling. I also brought the Canon EPOCA but this is definitely a medium format shot.
