Safeco Views From The Top
Spike Mafford spent an entire year on top of the Safeco Tower, now the University of Washington Tower, in Seattle, WA. Documenting the four seasons from the rooftop on medium and large format film. From the hundreds of images created, sixteen were selected and made into 30 x 30 inch color ink jet prints which have become part of the Safeco permanent art collection.
Images from this series are available for purchase.
