The basement under the wards of Worcester State Hospital, an 1870s asylum in Massachusetts, was about the creepiest place I’ve ever poked my flashlight into.  Pitch-black, with heavy boards covering all the windows, the first thing one would see when shining a torch into the building after sliding down a collapsed staircase was a mummified dog.  There were strange, experimental hydrotherapy devices and a scale in a climate-controlled room to weigh patients while doctors performed obscure procedures on them.  But imagine my surprise when, in 2006, I rounded a bend to a stairwell and found these mannequin legs standing upright against the rusticated stone wall.  I nearly leapt out of my boots.  Every trip in there was accompanied by a strange feeling of dread, until the wards were torn down entirely in 2008.

Random photo for the evening—
The interior of an abandoned house in the Tellico Plains, Tennessee area. The home was destroyed during the March 3, 2012 tornado that had struck the area. It is unknown what happened to the family that once lived there up until a couple of years ago. Whether they relocated to a new home in Tellico or simply moved out of town, it’s unknown.

Often in my travels, I come across buildings that are becoming overtaken by nature.  Vines crawl through broken windows in derelict asylums, reaching in to meet the moss that blankets the walls.  On the top floor of a crumbling school in Harlem, a tree has been growing for decades.  But nowhere is this theme more obvious than at Riverside Hospital on North Brother Island.  Kudzu and other climbing vines have overwhelmed the former quarantine island that once played home to “Typhoid” Mary Mallon, creeping up the sides of buildings, cascading into top-floor rooms through holes in ceilings.  Here, in what was once an open field in front of the now-collapsed chapel, the kudzu is so dense that one must move slowly so as not to get tangled up in it.  In the distance, it is overwhelming the coal house and obscures any view of the power plant besides the looming smokestack.  This is truly a place where nature is winning the battle.

Flooded bathroom in South Carolina State Hospital’s Babcock Building.  This was my third or fourth trip to the asylum; on the following trip - when I was there to shoot gnossiennemodel - we made a rather gruesome discovery on our way to go shoot in this room…
