The Barber Chair

Chambersburg, United States

Artist's Description

My rendition of the infamous barber chair at the Eastern State Penitentiary in Philadelphia PA.

One of many I’m sure will be posted on here as it is a very interesting subject to shoot. Rumour has it this chair was used for more then just a shave and trim. No one wants to say what really went on behind these bars.

Built in 1822 the prison became a model for some 300 other prisons around the world with it’s hub and spoke design. The prison was open until 1971.

Nikon D80, 17-55, 1/20, f/7.1, @30mm, ISO 400.
