Allison Bailey's Current Projects
I have two major projects that I'm working on at the moment:
1. Processing photos from my recent trip to the Atacama Desert in northern Chile. I took over 2000 photos, and I'm now choosing my favorites and processing them. I'm posting them to my Atacama Desert Gallery as I complete them.
The Atacama Desert is a very unique place, as much of it is over 2 miles in altitude, and it is the driest place on the planet. The photos are from well-known beautiful locations like the El Tatio Geysers, Lagunas Miscanti and Meniques, Valleys of the Moon and Death, as well as from lesser-known breathtaking locations as the Tara Salt Flat and colorful Rainbow Valley.
When completed, the collection will be posted on my website here.
2. A book of photos from the Paris Metro (subway system). Many of the subway stations in Paris are designed to reflect the neighborhoods they serve. For example, the station for the Place de la Concorde, one of the most important sites during the French Revolution, has platforms in which the French Constitution covers the walls and ceiling, one letter per tile.
I spent an April afternoon photographing the Metro system, and have chosen 35 photos for a book. While the book is in process, you can see the photos on my website here, or in the Photoshelter Gallery.
If you have questions or would like to discuss these projects, please do not hesitate to contact me.
