Meat smokers at Stephens, a former sausage plant that closed it’s doors in 2005. The meat was hung in these rooms, and smoked by heat coming up from the floor below the grates.

After painting the doors with a 2AA Maglite, I ran downstairs and popped a red gel’d flash through the grate, illuminating the back of the brick wall. The stench from years of built up grease dripping down was pretty disgusting.

Thanks to Justin for the idea of lighting up the grates from below.
