Collapsing City

The abandoned Packard Plant is 40 acres of industrial ruins. From certain points it looks almost like a city. The Packard Plant hasn’t made cars since the 50’s. I think this image looks like a scene that could have been captured at the end of World War II in Europe, but it’s present day America.

Baker Perkins Shelving Dominos

Shot this close to home at Saginaw’s Baker Perkins Plant. They used to make ovens and do customized machining.

It was a fairly large industrial complex in varying stages of demolition. Almost like a mini Packard Plant. This room was weird, lots of vacuum tubes were stored on the shelves if I recall correctly. Looked like someone tried to play dominos with the shelves.

Nice lighting and captured with a Fuji GW690 which is the most tack sharp camera I own. Printed this at 16×20 read more

I’m not rich enough for the expensive negs but there is some really cute work available read more
