The Corrugated Nightmare

The mill building at the long-abandoned Atolia Mine.  When I visited the site 10 years ago, this building was still filled with complex separating machinery, offices, kitchenette and a wet lab.  The entire interior is gutted now.

Once I saw the potential for symmetrically lining up the windows and concrete foundation inside, I made a long series of test exposures to get this ridiculously complex set up perfectly aligned.  Then it became a question of balancing all the different lighting elements.  Turquoise and red skimmed outside, green and purple inside.  All lit with the Protomachines flashlight.  Slight perspective correction in post, too.
