If you hang around any building with Bob Lussier, it becomes pretty apparent, pretty quickly that he has a thing for staircases. Others have noticed this before, of course (Brian Matiash christened him “The Stair Whisperer” a few years ago and named a preset in OnOne’s PhotoEffect after him) but until you spend a couple of hours locked in a fire escape stairwell with him, you don’t really begin to understand the depths of his obsession.
This may sound negative (and, of course, I’m just poking fun at a good friend) but Bob’s over-developed stairwell interest pays back since many of the pictures he has shot in dusty fire escapes around the Lawrence mills are fabulous – follow the link above and take a look through his blog. The pictures are even more impressive when you consider that all are taken in confined spaces with rather limited camera placement options.
I took many images in this Everett Mill stair well and I’ll be posting a couple more later this week but it’s fair to say that none of them are good enough to challenge the Stair Whisperer.
