For two years I made photographs in the storage areas of Saint Augustine’s Lightner Museum. The museum exhibits relics from America’s Gilded Age and is housed in the grand Flagler-era building of what was the Alcazar Hotel. The unexhibited collections are stored on the restricted fourth floor in 44 small rooms that once served as staff quarters for the old hotel.
All of the photographs were constructed “in-camera”, meaning that the objects were placed and lighted in real time. Photoshop was used in post-production only to prepare and enhance the image for viewing and printing.
