STILL LIFE IN AN OLD WATER MILL 1971
During the early seventies, I documented quite a number of old grist mills along the Blue Ridge and Shenandoah Valley. This image was made in what was then known as Tyro Mill near Tyro, VA. This scene was just as I found it, and I never changed a thing. The lighting was coming through a window in the Miller's office and all I had to do was set up the tripod with my 2 1/4 inch film camera attached, and the rest was rather easy. The only trick here was to recognize the concept and then figure out how to execute it as you had previsualized it.
