Why and how Indranil created this image

Indranil created this image at the Easter State Penitentiary in Philadelphia, PA. He wanted to capture the historic location in a way that took the viewer back in time.

For post-processing, he used Silver Efex Pro 3 by DXO Labs to get the tones he was looking for.

He hopes the viewer feels like they are standing here in this vast, eerily empty space.
