Hanging Garden – 2012
This abandoned mine building was a joy to explore and photograph because it was so unique compared to anywhere else I have been.
There were thousands of these hanging baskets filling a an open room the size of a football field. Workers would place their valuables inside the baskets, then raise it toward the ceiling using a chain which they would then lock. I would imagine that the use of these hanging baskets was more space economical than traditional lockers.
