This is the fourth floor of the end of the female wards at Hudson River State Hospital. Time has decidedly been unkind to this asylum; water has ravaged it, and a fire in 2007 took out the male wards. There was once a plan to redevelop the site - and this once-beautiful Kirkbride building - into residential development, but the town of Poughkeepsie stalled on rezoning, and then the fire pretty much ended that possibility. Now, the better parts of the wards look like this - and the worse parts don’t have floors.

Male violent ward, 4th floor, Greystone Park State Hospital, 2006.  I have just created a new gallery on SmugMug to showcase some of my older work (all of it film, since I didn’t own a digital camera until 2008); many of the buildings pictured no longer exist.  Those that exist are often radically different now - for example, all of the blue and yellow paint that made this ward so distinct have flaked off the walls, and the windows have collapsed into the arch, causing a terribly uneven distribution of light.  Why not head on over to SmugMug and take a look at some of my early work, which I’m slowly but surely making scans from the negatives of!

'Pride'
Jewish cemetery’s tombstone broken in clash between German and Soviet troops during Siege of Breslau. The Fortress spilled blood of soldiers and civilians till the very end of Second World War in Europe, surrendering in fire and despair along with whole Third Reich. After 82 days of encirclement almost entire city was lost in ruins.
