In the summer of 2006 I spent 2 days photographing the El Dorado and Rowan Buildings before they were remodeled.
Those were two magical days. I felt as if I was photographing all of the emotions from the lives that had passed through the buildings. I knew that I was the last person to see them.
These photographs are the proof.
This is a limited edition book of 272 copies, the same number of units in the El Dorado and Rowan Buildings combined, plus, one for me.
All of the images were shot using a 4 X 5 film plate camera.
