One Take: Delta Architecture, A Study

In which we gave photographer Tim Hursley a Polaroid, eight frames of film and one take to get the shot

AT THAT TIME, it was getting precious. I had one Polaroid left, and we purposefully went out to that building to make that picture. We drove out there, knowing that it would be at the end of the day, that very last bit of sun, and that it would punch that orange a lot. That’s just the kind of day it was. I thought it would work well—it’s isolated out there. Now, I don’t know what they did in that building, what the function of that was—maybe one of these agricultural things, maybe a train was coming through there. It’s interesting that you picked that shot, the 11th hour.
