Abstractions of Dark and Light on Alcatraz Island. 27 color photographs. Intense sunlight outside contrasts with deep, cold darkness inside to form abstractions on the walls of the abandoned prison on Alcatraz Island. The interplay of shadow and brightness reveals uncanny details. Seen through layers of windows and bars, the remarkable beauty of the San Francisco Bay is decontextualized and distorted by the crumbling structures. The distance is obscured and the near view is inscrutable.
