Field Trip: Eastern State Penitentiary, Philadelphia PA
April 20, 2019 @ 9:30 am – 1:00pm
Eastern State Penitentiary was once the most famous penitentiary in the world. Some of its most famous in mates include Al Capone, and Bank robber “Slick Willie” Sutton. The field trip provides an opportunity to photograph a hunting world of crumbling cellblocks and empty guard towers. We will have an early admission at 9:30 am, and will enjoy a guided highlight tour from 9:30-10:00 am, before the facility opens to the public. We can obtain a reduced entrance free or $11 per adult, and $10 for seniors, and a reduced tripod fee of $5 if our group has a minimum of 15 persons. We will plan a lunch at local restaurant after the shoot. For more information on the Penitentiary, see: https://www.easternstate.org. Driving time from Northern Virginia is around 2.5 hours.
Venue: Eastern State Penitentiary, 2027 Fairmont Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19130
