Panels for Portals

By on April 1st, 2020 in Photography

Some time ago, after many explorations of the Princeton University campus, I had noticed that many university buildings had doors that would appear at seeming random and odd places. In many cases, these doors had no "step-up" and appeared to be hanging from the walls. I was always curious to know what lay behind the doors. Were they even real doors or just frames? Or perhaps they were magic portals like the ones in Harry Potter.

Yesterday when I was out walking around Princeton getting some exercise with my wife as well as practising not going bonkers from living this abnormal life, I starting photographing the doors that appeared next to the entrances of the storefronts, and my curiosity returned. I shared my thoughts about the Princeton University doors with my wife, who flattened my fantasies by suggesting that perhaps the doors were entryways for the apartment residents who lived above the storefronts.
