This photograph was taken from within one of the buildings that comprise what remains of the Larundel mental asylum in Melbourne. Living in Tasmania, I have only been there once and will unlikely be able to visit again as the buildings are soon to be demolished to make way for a housing development.

Photography is my ‘passion’. I studied it in years 11 and 12, where I learned how to processes films in the dark room. Since then, my photography was restricted to digital compacts until I was able to afford an DSLR in 2010.

Until recently I had been doing a PhD in Agricultural Science at the University of Tasmania. I have recently decided that a career in science is not going to make me happy, so I am now studying graphic design.

    Great image…. This looks as though it could have been the recreation room… you have inspired me once again, I think I might go pay it a visit tomorrow, I will let you know how i go :)

  • Hello Melissa! Thank you for your lovely comment :) Oh yes, you should definitely visit! Just make sure you bring a torch so you dont fall down any holes in the floor as we saw some very dangerous ones. Best of luck! I am going on holiday and wont have internet for a week, so if you BM I will be sure to get back to you when I return :)
