As theaters eschew film projectors in favor of digital ones, the movie theater projectionist will become a thing of the past. Photographer Joseph O. Holmes has embarked on a project to document this quickly-disappearing profession.

He writes not only is the lighting inside the projection booths dim, but it’s also pretty awful looking. He brings his own light into these spaces in the form of a softbox and Nikon speedlights, and, if his son isn’t available to assist, he holds the softbox himself and triggers his camera remotely using his PocketWizard FlexTT5® and MiniTT1®.
