Before and After

Colonial as a Wreck

Colonial as a Wreck

What is a theater but a machine to create illusion?  When the Colonial’s stage area was abandoned it began to function on its own. Captain less, rudderless and with out an audience it was a ghost ship sailing to uncharted illusions.  It bumped along for half a century.  I made a few photographs of the unscripted performance.  They are some of my very favorites.
