Most people want to break out of prison. Patrick and I, we break in. Ok, so maybe it's not an functioning prison anymore, but it was once.
I've wanted to shoot at the Atlanta Prison Farm for quite some time and Patrick Logan, a super talented actor friend of mine, was the perfect person to bring for the occasion. Not only is he big and could protect me if some crazy person came out from behind a set of rusty prison bars, but his look and vibe lend perfectly to the atmosphere there. This historic East Atlanta location was in operation from 1945 to 1995, but now sits burnt and defunct, overgrown with kudzu and splattered with graffiti.
A really cool thing about shooting with Patrick was that I got to play around with some shots that aren't my typical style, but that I think turned out pretty great. I love the dark, tough, gritty nature of these.
**Though this abandoned place is surely calling to all urban explorers, be warned that you are at risk when going here. We were lucky enough to wrap up our shoot just as some SWAT guys showed up to kick us out... and very, very lucky not to get in more trouble than just a stern talking to. I recommend getting permission before entering.
