Artist's Description

Wicked creepy photo from deep inside the dark, abandoned army bunkers at Ft. Wetherill in Jamestown, RI. These bunkers were built to defend the United States against a possible Nazi invasion during World War II. Today it may seem to be a far-fetched idea, but a German U-Boat did sink a few ships off the Rhode Island shore and America had to prepare for all possiblities. (The Alaska Highway was built to defend the North from Japan at the same time.)

The bunkers are dark, and littered with candles and occult paraphernalia. We went in armed only with our flashlights and our cameras. It was the day after Halloween, so we half-expected to find revelers sleeping off the previous night’s partying. Alas, only our imaginations spooked us as much as the graffiti and candles.

Created using a Holga 120CFN with Fuji 800 ISO film in complete darkness with the white flash. No digital manipulation.
