Blackboard

Blackboard presents a series of photos taken in an abandoned
school building in Berkeley, California. In one of the classrooms,
I discovered that the blackboard had a tiny crack down the middle of
it. If you stood close enough, you could see a tiny line of light
shining through from the other side.

If you put your eye right up to the crack, you could see right through
the crack, all the way across the next room, to an open window with
sun streaming through its white curtains.

My camera was set up on a tripod, right in front of this crack.
With each photo, I adjust the focus slightly, which pushes the
image from a crisp view of the flat blackboard, gradually passing
through the crack, across the room and finally ending at the
open window in the next room.
