Just a little experiment with this snow layer… This building was beautifully haunting inside and out. Pool Park is an abandoned mental asylum in Ruthin, North Wales.

Pool Park House in Ruthin, Wales, was once owned by Sir Walter Bagot, a prominent Staffordshire barrister, and was rebuilt in its current incarnation between 1826-1829 as a residence for the second Lord Bagot. After eventually being sold to the Tate family (of Tate & Lyle), it was acquired by the North Wales Counties Mental Hospital and opened in 1937 to accommodate 87 patients for relief of overcrowding at the much larger Denbigh Asylum. Its official designation was as a psychiatric convalescent home, and eventually closed in 1990.

A selection of my images from abandoned places

A photograph is a trace of its subject. The viewer and the image belong to each other. Capturing these traces is a passion, an obsession for me. I hope the thrill comes through in my images.
