Asylum Photographs

I have always held a visual fascination with places that unsettle the viewer. I used to spend a lot of time watching horror movies and this visit was very much like walking into a set for me, but a set with very a real history and tangible humanity. Anywhere that has been lived in and abandoned inevitably holds stories of the past. Our eye naturally scans for these stories and looks for traces of activity, which turns the context from a straightforward documentation into something approaching myth. It crossed my mind a few times to move an item for better composition but somehow it felt sacrilegious to do that.”
