Blocked Portals
Project info

These 'bricked-in' images are part of an ongoing side-project looking at bricked or blocked portals around the globe. They serve as allegorical references to universal conditions ranging from physical to metaphysical and spiritual. I began this series in the 1970s and have photographed more bricked-in walls and windows than I care to remember as I stumble around the planet. Some of these images were shot on transparency film back in the day, and the scanning done on a fairly ordinary scanner, causing some softness and extra contrast. The image quality can be improved greatly with funds to get them scanned properly
