In 2011, the National Park Service commissioned me to artistically photograph the unrestored interiors of
located at Connecticut's
first national park unit, Weir Farm National Historic Site. Young
was a painter and
Ashcan School and the son-in-law of Julian Alden Weir, the father of American Impressionist painting.
Young's studio features a high ceiling for accessing his monumental sculptures. Interesting patterns are formed by the
catwalks, railings, support posts, stove pipe and paneling. Small sculptures, cast iron stoves, paint
abstract forms created by water damage and other forms punctuate the overall symmetry and brown tones.
