Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, California, USA
Phillip Chaney, Iron Workers/ Operating Engineer Supervisor at the Golden Gate Bridge 2012.
This photograph of Phil Chaney was taken underneath the bridge with him standing on a strut over the water. It’s quite a spectacular spot under the beautiful red bridge that spans across the Golden Gate. One of my favorite spots in area. This was taken for a project on the 75th Anniversary of the Bridge last year. A show, Gatekeepers, 30 portraits of Golden Gate Bridge workers is hanging at Fort Point in the Presidio now.
