Inside the Flames...A firey HELL

Inside the Flames...A firey HELL

Faith McAllister, "Inside the Flames", Sony Digital Camera, Faith McAllister_JFD Collection, Jasper GA

This picture is of the inside of an actual residential structure fire. In honor of the Privacy Act, the exact location, nor the names of the homeowners may be disclosed to any non-personnel. The house caught fire one night and was extinguished and preserved by Jasper Fire and Rescue Station 1, Pickens County Fire Station 11, and Talking Rock Volunteer Fire Station 7. Several volunteers also responded to this call. The owners of the home decided to rebuild and donated the structure to be used as a controlled burn, also known as a training fire. The inside of a structure fire, depending on the type of materials being burned and gasses being omitted, is about 1,100 degrees Fahrenheit after only 3-1/2 minutes of engulfment! The inside of other rooms that are not even on fire yet can reach over 300 degrees, which is hot enough to melt plastic without flames. The inside of the house will be completely dark within only 4 minutes, regardless of the lighting. A single-wide trailer can burn to the ground in only 7 short minutes.
Imagine such a horrendous fire happening on a night over 100 years ago, when fire apparatus and training wasn't nearly as advanced as it is now...Catastrophic. Well, they did happen back in 1871, and changed the way that America fights fire today. On Sunday evening, October 8, 1871, The Great Chicago Fire and the Preshtigo fire raged on the same night, just 262 miles apart from one another.
In 1871, Chicago was considered a "boom town" with around 60,000 buildings. 40,000 of those then magnificent buildings were constructed of wood, and had roofs made of either felt, wood, or wooden shingles. The construction laws were extremely lax, and fire codes were practically nonexistent. Chicago was extremely dry that night due to lack of rain for the three weeks prior. The Great Chicago Fire was rumored to have been started by a cow kicking over a lantern in a barn. Ignition did occur in a barn on the west side of the city; however, I'm convinced that the cow should remain innocent since she was never proven guilty!
The boys of the Chicago Fire Department were exhausted from fighting a fire earlier that day that spanned four blocks. Their response time to what is now known as The Great Chicago Fire was delayed due to errors in judgement of the location of the fire and in signaling the alarm. The fire fighters were first sent to the wrong neighborhood, causing the loss of precious time. Upon their arrival, the fire was already spreading out of control to the east and north and was consuming EVERYTHING in it's path. Private homes and mansions, as well as commercial buildings were all raging out of control--fueling the flames of Chicago's Hell. With limited equipment and personnel, the Chicago Fire Department seemed to be meeting it's match! The Great Chicago fire raged on relentlessly for 3 days and was finally extinguished by Mother Nature as the rain finally began to fall on the morning of October 10, 1871. The entire central business and heart of the city was completely leveled to ash and smouldering rubble. More than 2,000 acres and 17,000 homes were destroyed, leaving upwards of 100,000 people homeless. The city suffered more than $200 million in damages, and at least 300 people were killed.
On that same fateful October day, (10/08/1871) the under-publicized Preshtigo Fire occurred, just 262 miles north of Chicago. Preshtigo, Wisconsin had been the host to a large logging operation, which left the forest floor carpeted with pine branches and sawdust. Clearing projects at the time used a "slash and burn" method, in which tiny, controlled fires were used to dispose of the refuse. The city was under drought-like conditions for the entire summer of 1871 and was severely dry by the fall. Several of the "slash and burn" fires caught wind and were swept up into a huge cyclonic fire storm. This "tornado of fire" quickly grew to more than 1,000 feet high and 5 miles wide. The Preshtigo Fire Company consisted of a single, horse-drawn steam pumper and was NO match for a forest fire of this magnitude--their efforts were hopeless. The Preshtigo Fire blazed on destroying more than 2,400 square miles of forest, as well as several small communities. It claimed the lives of more than 2,200 settlers. It then became a firestorm and actually jumped the Green Bay-which was about 60 miles wide. It then went on to completely burn and destroy several hundred more miles of land and settlements on the northeast peninsula of Wisconsin.
In the light of these two tragic fires, America began to enact strict building and fire codes. Improvements in communications are still constantly being made. Advances in firefighting equipment as a whole were set in force then to ensure that these such tragedies do not recur. The Preshtigo Fire is stil

What Was Your Most Anxious Show Experience?

What Was Your Most Anxious Show Experience?

It's almost as if music seems to heighten every emotion. You might be going to a show to see a band but there's all of these elements outside of your control. You might be anxious about meeting someone there, the aggressiveness of the crowd, or arriving too late. Set times might change or you might be waiting in a super hot and poorly ventilated packed space for a musician who is an hour plus late.

Going to a show has all of these factors for those who aren't shooting it. For those who are photographing, there's a whole new set. Some venues are inconsistent about whether they will have a photopit up and you never seem to know until you actually get there. For us, a band going on early means, if the venue follows the strict 3 song limit, we might not get a chance to photograph that musician period. With an aggressive crowd, we also risk not only broken bones but thousands of dollars of camera equipment that may not be ensured breaking. And, of course, dark lighting or nonexistent lighting for us means our coverage will look terrible and if it's a band we really care about, we can't help but stress about that. Also, even though so many of us do this for free out of love for the band, it's really not uncommon for the publicist or the venue to mess up and for us not to be on the list or even be allowed to take photos. This even happened to me just last Saturday. It can be one of the most nerve wracking experiences out there just to use your camera to capture the memories.

But above all, for me, the most anxiety is usually caused when I'm photographing someone quiet such as Laura Marling or Mirah. I never like to get in the way of others physically so I try to show up on the early side and try not to stand right in front of someone shorter than me. But that clicking sound of the shutter closing can be rather thunderous.

I'd been a Magnetic Fields fan for well over a decade when they played at Chicago's Old Town School of Folk Music in 2008. I was lucky that my friend Sei Jin bought enough tickets early on when I was at work that Cinchel and I could buy two. Tickets were $25 a piece. For those unfamiliar with the venue, it's unfortunately not my favorite. It tends to host quieter acts in an environment I find stifling. Everyone sits down as if we're all a little too suburban to suffer standing. There is never any photopit and the light can be quite variable which means if you don't have a ticketed seat right up front, you aren't going to get any good shots.

I photographed Magnetic Fields for Venus Zine and I should have realized when it took so long to get the photopass that the band really wasn't all that interested in getting their picture taken. The first thing that happened before the show even began was a rude person at will call who told me that after I was finished shooting my ONE first song, I needed to leave. I had to explain I had actually paid $25 for the privilege of shooting the band for one song, which is rather unfortunate.

But the worst part came later. Stephin Merritt doesn't play with heavy distortion despite the fact that they were touring on an album by that name at the time. I've also heard he's a bit of an antisocial sort of person. Still, I really love his music and was just as anxious as I was excited.

The real horrible thing happened when right before the first song, Claudia Gonson turned to me-I was the only photographer there-and though I was taking photos from the seat and had purchased the tickets, though I wasn't using flash or being obtrusive, she says, "You KNOW it's only one song right?" It was unnecessary and, because it was directed right at me, it drew everyone's attention my way negatively even though that had never been my intention.

I still love the music but sometimes the more you get to know the personalities of those who sing the lyrics you know by heart and write the melodies that change your life, unfortunately, *sometimes* the more you dislike them as people.

I think Stephin Merritt is a genius but I'm kind of glad he's not my next door neighbor or something.

Ok-your turn to vent!
