I paid a second visit to Pennhurst State School & Hospital last weekend in an outing I organized to include some photographer friends. It was fun sharing the experience but a little more challenging for me. I had already photographed the scenes that called out loudest to me and now I had to dig a little deeper so as not to repeat what I had done a few months before. I found myself still attracted to several scenes with the left-over wooden chairs and institutional seating. Down in the basement, in a place called ‘Candy Land’ a small group of us practiced light-painting. ‘Candy Land Exit’ and ‘Math Studies’ are the results. I chose several frames to process and then picked my favorites to display here. Like before, I did my best to stay true to the color, light and feeling about the place.
