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 to be titled Fort Worden: Rebirth Through Decay, and will be finished September 2011. The majority of the book will be comprised of fine art black and white images, seen here. The appendix is quite sizable, including an index of locations, map, history of Fort Worden, specific battery information, historical documents and historical images.
Once the book is completed a virtual preview showing the entire book will be published here. For more up-to-date news on the book, visit SaintImages on Facebook, and to purchase other SaintImages photographs, visit SaintImages.com.
