Each time I shoot at Eastern State Penitentiary I try to concentrate on a different element or theme. This trip I was mostly concentrating on doors, windows and other portals. A prison is all about doors and windows and which ones you can look out and which ones you may never walk through again. The prison was built in 1829 and closed in 1971. It is located on Fairmont Avenue in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
