The last wooden school chair survives—almost intact—by being jammed between a pipe and the ceiling of the boiler room.
Snow weight collapsed this section of McKee… the newest section. The brick buildings always outlive cheap metal ones.
2015. Water damage hastens the decay of the annex and its stage. Every time I visit this room, the chairs are in different places. Kodak Portra 400 in a Voigtlander Bessa.
A skyway 100 feet above this office crumbled one day. This is what happened when those two met. High-impact love.
The main floor of the hospital was crammed with furniture.
One of the cupola air intakes, rattled loose by the demolition downstairs, hangs stranded on the second floor. You can see that the floor I’m standing on in this picture used to extend all the way to the right wall. The blue paint on the wall made the climb absolutely worth it.
