Entry Description: 900 US sailors were trapped and went down with the USS Arizona on December 7, 1941 after being attacked by Japanese fighter planes in Pearl Harbor, Oahu Hawaii. Today, many still lie buried beneath the sunken ship in Harbor. This image is one of a series I shot inside of the USS Arizona memorial that floats above the actual ship.
