Rare Photos Of Twin Peaks Sets By Production Designer Richard Hoover

I just stumbled upon 10 beautiful photographs of some original Twin Peaks sets shot by the show’s very own production designer, Richard Hoover. I don’t believe they’ve been published elsewhere, except for his own portfolio website, so allow me to classify them as rare… at least for now. These authentic photos give you an idea of how it must have felt like being a crew member walking around the iconic sets like The Great Northern and The Blue Pine Lodge (the Martell residence) at the Van Nuys sound stage.

Richard has since been responsible for many other production designs, including more recently Enlightened starring Laura Dern, the Entourage pilot as well as The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, which he worked on together with another Twin Peaks production designer, Patricia Norris. Patricia, who did the original production design on the Twin Peaks pilot up in Washington state, deserves a lot of credit for the look of the sets below.
