Alcatraz Cellhouse: 2011 in Five

I’m sharing five memorable images from 2011 this week. Here’s the fourth of the series.

In October, I visited Alcatraz and created hundreds of photographs. Those images provided the source material for my book Alcatraz Views, which tells the history of Alcatraz island via photography with captions to help explain the island’s past as a military fort and prison. The photography was step one that led to the research, writing, and compilation of the material into both as a printed book as well as ePub format for Apple’s iBooks.

It was a fun project. I expect to create additional books in the future.
