Way back in January I got the opportunity to go into the Dupont Underground. These tunnels below Dupont Circle were once used for a trolly system that was discontinued decades ago. There have been attempts over the years to make use of this underground space but nothing has been successful.
Now a group is trying to change that. They want to use the space for the arts and have a lease from the city to try and make their vision a reality.
When I went down below the city they had yet to start doing any work on the space. Which meant I got to see it in it's raw, long untouched state. It was amazing, and I was way too excited to be shooting to realize how spooky it could have been. I could have spent the whole day down there taking photos. I only had about an hour but I made the most of it. What an awesome experience!
