Danvers State Hospital - Danvers, MA : Danvers State Hospital was built in 1878, and closed in 1992. In 2006-2007 the buildings (all except the middle section of the main building) were demolished to make room for condos. These pictures were taken in late 2005 just before demolition began.

Alcatraz - 9/09/2007 : Taken at Alcatraz Island in San Francisco Bay, California.

I didn't actually visit Alcatraz until after I had moved out of San Francisco.  This is the correct order of operations, I am told, as residents participating in something so touristy are ostracized.  Boy am I glad I dodged that bullet!  What a depressing place.  I had fun anyway and, as usual, took way too many pictures then sat on them for months.

Eastern State Penitentiary : I finally, through some internet research, was able to attach a name to this odd obsession I seem to have with 
photographing rotten, decaying, afwul things in places I really shoudn't be in the first place. It's called Urban Exploration. 

Further reseach led me to the Eastern State Pennitentiary web site (www.easternstate.org) and I virtually could not sleep until I had been there and shot it. 

These images represent a change in my work, very little if any, manipulation of the images. The incredible nature of this 
most hideous place, the objects in it, the state of amazing synchronicity between rotting decay and everlasting strength, 
dominance and control, the "feel" of knowing that human beings lived and died here, makes intrusive image manipulation a sacrilege. 
The images stand on their own. Certain enhancements are obvious, and in those cases I feel strongly contribute to the image's feel, intent, and message. 

So please enjoy them. 

I'm going back.
