Photoshoot at the Pen

I met Luis Alvarez at this photoshoot with Greg Gorman when he was in town in March. Today we shot at the old Penitentiary where the famous 1980 prison riot happened. Luis used a Hasselblad that records 39 mega pixels per image!!
This is the very room where the riot started. Inmates burned mattresses in this room. The fire burned for three days and became so hot that the concrete “melted”. See this photo that shows a hole in the floor.
I wish I had brought my EOS 20D, but the Nokia did pretty well.
