Along the Northern California coast there are many World War2 army bunkers built as observation points to protect the San Francisco harbor from Japanese Invasion. Two bunkers south of San Francisco are covered inside and out in graffiti, gun bores incorporated into the designs. Angry Orchard bunker in Pacifica is secluded, visited only by locals, a Lascaux-like, mesmerizing, smokey cave interior. Motion Smokey sits on Devil’s Slide Highway1, a dangerous site above the ocean and sheer cliffs, passed by dozens of tourists every day. I took these photographs with my sturdy LG cell phone, to show that somehow, creativity survives violence.
