    A fascinating and fabulously rich image. Almost captivates as an “old master” style yet eeriely contemporary.

  • thank you! that’s quite a compliment! i do try to make it look like a hybrid of the two, actually, so i’m glad it’s coming across :)

  • thank you – it was one of the most beautiful state hospitals ever built, in my opinion. much more lavish than even the other lavish spots!

    I just read your interview from the monthly feature, man. I must say, I totally relate to the way you feel at peace in these places, especially the place above. I’ve spent countless hours in that building, just listening to the wind whip through, sitting in a hallway, listening to the building drip and creak. I love “Algonquin” next time you find yourself there, drop me a line and we’ll meet up. I can get you into buildings over there that you may not have seen yet. :)

    Thanks so much for sharing your work and your gift. Never stop shooting!

  • thanks, friend. there is something really awe-inspiring and humbling about this place. maybe it’s the fact that you know at any minute it can snatch you from the face of the earth. still go there much?
