American Photography 26 - Chosen

detroit schools

There was a time when I entered all of the photojournalism-based contests, diligently following the esoteric filenaming and captioning instructions and crossing my fingers as I hit upload. These days I'm only entering American Photography and Communication Arts, and was very happy to get an e-mail yesterday that one of my Detroit Schools images had been "Chosen" for the web site.

This was one of the first photos I shot while working on this project and I remember struggling to make sense of what I was seeing and feeling a little creeped out by the noises I kept hearing as I walked down the dark hallways.
