The Chair Eastern State Penitentiary

Back at Eastern State in Philadelphia, the iconic Cell 10 Barber Chair in the Penitentiary. A great cell to shoot. I am not sure of the history of the chair, if it was originally in that cell or was just placed there for the great location and lighting the cell had, makes for a creepy setting for sure, and a location that is highly photographed, there is always a camera and tripod cramming into the small cell opening and usually a couple more waiting in the wings for the shot of the chair. One from the archives I wanted to process, ya gotta love Eastern State.

Have a great Weekend!

Thanks for Stopping!

  4. Who doesn’t love this place, Mike? It is funny. I have posted a lot of photos from ESP but never this iconic chair. I need to go back and edit it. I hope I do as well as this terrific one.

  5. One of my top favorite shots of this iconic barber’s chair, Mike, you’ve really done a terrific job in capturing the raw tension here, leaving us all with a sense of longing to know more! Wonderful shot.
