I consider this among the greatest photographs I’ve ever taken. As my friends were packing to leave Taunton State Hospital on a spring night in 2006, I was setting up one last shot by the light of the full moon. I loaded my Minolta SRT-101 with Fuji NPH, a 400 ASA film that had uneven reciprocity failure - it color-shifted towards blue during long exposure. I composed this shot basically in the dark using intuition, and then just guessed that a 30 minute exposure at f/8 would work. And when I got my film back from the lab… I had this shot of a chair by a window in one of the many patient rooms in the asylum, captured entirely by full moonlight. Shortly thereafter, I dropped out of a PhD program in philosophy to do photography full-time.
