Here’s an extra photo for the Inlander of the 15 year old creators, Madison Seipp and Brittan Hart, of “Riverside Storybook”, an anthology of work by their local peers. A call for submissions earlier this year resulted in an 85 page book filled with prose, poetry, art and photography. http://www.inlander.com/spokane/writing-their-way/Content?oid=2777606
For the photograph, it had been raining all day this past Sunday, when the photoshoot was scheduled. An outdoor portrait at this location at the Spokane River seemed the most appropriate as it went both with the title and the cover art on the book. The rain stopped just in time for the photoshoot. It started raining again later in the day and into the following day.
I photographed author Sam Ligon for the Inlander last week. He wasn’t sure what sort of location would best reflect his personality until he settled on a downtown location in Spokane. He stated an affinity for the murals under the train bridges. So, we started there. I took a few photos of him with the murals in the background, one of which ended up publishing. We also picked a couple of nearby locations. The photo above is under the edge of a train bridge looking down the sidewalk, utilizing a lot of the light and the shadows that were present in the scene. http://www.inlander.com/spokane/the-wordfather/Content?oid=2771454
