Something is Brewing

I photographed the room at the Trans Allegheny Lunatic Asylum in West Virginia.  The two ladies are a vintage photograph from the Metropolitan Museum of Art Open Access program.  This image took a ton of layers and even more hours.  First time I worked with more than one person in a vintage image and it was very detailed color work.  Worth the time and effort because I love these two ladies.  They were just so darn interesting.

I wanted to create mood, mystery, and a little magic. I always read articles that your image has to tell a story.  Well, sometimes the image, or at least my images, makes the viewer construct the story.  Just by answering five questions you have a story: Who? What? When? Where? How?
