Fort Worden is an abandoned U.S. military seacoast defense located in the sleepy town of Port Townsend, Washington. For a week in 2010 I photographed the batteries (gun armaments) of the old fort with the goal of having a portfolio published in the fine art photography journal Lenswork. Once I returned to my home in Eugene and pored over the images, I realized had enough material to compile a book. And over the next 9 months I did just that.
The book is titled Fort Worden: Rebirth Through Decay, and was completed September 1, 2011. The appendix is quite sizable, including an index of locations, map, history of Fort Worden, specific battery information, historical documents and historical images.
