Announcements & Events   Leave a comment

This page will have any announcements pertaining to events that are associated with this project, and a schedule of dates and activities that will be taking place at the site. As always, if there are any questions or concerns, please leave a comment on this page or email me at: info@docspix.com

I’m going to be wrapping up the photography on the site this week,( 17Jun2013) and into the weekend. During the week, I plan on working exclusively inside of the U.S. Yttrium building, and starting Friday afternoon the 21st of June, there will be vehicles and equipment located at the site in order to photograph using artificial lighting. Most of the photography will be taking place after dark. This includes Saturday, the 22nd; and Sunday the 23rd. All of this activity will be focused on the north and east areas of the site. This includes the U.S. Yttrium building, both of the control buildings, and possible some of the south production line. There will be people setting up lighting equipment in the afternoons of all three days.

Weather permitting, the plan is to photograph from about dusk until midnight; generally no later than 1:00 A.M. on both Friday and Saturday nights. Sunday night may extend until dawn. I will be using generators, and battery-powered lighting to accomplish this, as there is no power at the site. The generators will be placed inside of the buildings to mitigate noise.

I would like to thank everyone who attended tonight’s meeting of the Albany County Historical Society! It was fun! I have uploaded a video to youtube, and it can be found here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FI5UBut9ipg&feature=youtu.be This video covers the process I use to create the Alternate Light series of images.

I have launched an Indie-Go-Go campaign to help offset the costs associated with printing books, and matted prints for exhibition. If anyone is interested in helping me run this campaign, please contact me through this web site or at info@docspix.com. The Indie-Go-Go campaign can be found at: http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/historically-insignificant/x/2769436

The two weekends I spent on the site have proven to be incredibly successful, the work has produced a number of amazing images. I will not be publishing any of these images until after the presentation for the Albany County Historical Society on May 21st. I will be including all of the night time images during the presentation. Hope to see everyone there!

Again, I am going to spend another weekend on the site working late into the night for three days. The only variations are the exact locations, I am focusing primarily on the north production line, (north side of the yttrium building), and the still bank that is just east of the yttrium building. Starting Friday afternoon the 19th of April, there will be vehicles and equipment located at the site in order to photograph using artificial lighting. Most of the photography will be taking place after dark. This includes Saturday, the 20th; and Sunday the 21st. All of this activity will be focused on the U.S. Yttrium building, with lighting being placed inside and outside of the building. There will be people setting up lighting equipment in the afternoons of all three days.

Weather permitting, the plan is to photograph from about dusk until midnight; generally no later than 1:00 A.M. on both Friday and Saturday nights. Sunday night may extend until dawn. I will be using generators, and battery-powered lighting to accomplish this, as there is no power at the site. The generators will be placed inside of the buildings to mitigate noise.

This past weekend, (announcement below), was successful! I’ll be providing additional information about upcoming weekends in which more of this late-night work will be taking place. So, stay tuned!

Most of the photography will be taking place after dark. This includes Saturday, the 30th; and Sunday the 31st. All of this activity will be focused on the U.S. Yttrium building, with lighting being placed inside and outside of the building. There will be people setting up lighting equipment in the afternoons of all three days.

Weather permitting, the plan is to photograph from about dusk until midnight; generally no later than 1:00 A.M. on both Friday and Saturday nights. Sunday night may extend until dawn.
