This is the hall that leads to the inner walls of the Miami Holocaust Memorial. The hall was designed with slits in the walls, so that at the same time each day the light begins to bend and twist throughout the long hallway. When experienced in person, it creates a very unsettling feeling.

At the end of the hallway is a bronzed statue of a little girl on her knees with her arms extended, crying out for help. Behind her is an enormous bronzed arm and hand that reaches four stories into the air. The arm is made up of frail bodies of mean, women, and children screaming out in pain.

The red in the photo is not done in Photoshop. I shot the photo on Kodak T-Max 400 and had a C-Print made. I then took the print and placed it into Kodak Sepia Toning Bleach I until the yellow and cyan pigments had been bleached away. What was left, were the red pigments of the C-Print. This is one advantage of the darkroom over the lightroom.

    @ Cary
    Thank you very much. Ever since Kodak changed the chemistry for their Sepia Toner I haven't been able to reproduce the effect.
