Lorton Reformatory

In the last post we say how the former Occoquan Workhouse at the Lorton Reformatory in Virginia had been converted into the Workhouse Arts Center. The artist studios are great places to visit especially as the artists are quite often in the studios and are open to discuss their work with you. However, as a photographer there are also many other interesting sights to find. The buildings that form the Workhouse Arts Center are set around a manicured grass quad. It is the in areas on the outside that you can find more of the history of the Lorton Reformatory.

Each of the three photographs here were captured from the car parks which surround the Workhouse Arts Center. You need to restrict your exploration to just these areas. The rest is fenced off and out-of-bounds. That being said, there are still some great subjects to point a camera at.
