Just a few of the many photos I took during my trip down south. Works in progress.
I had a piece up at some place.
The final image of Fabienne’s Great Uncle Ben, who was ostracized by the family after threatening his sister (Fabienne’s Grandmother) with a knife.
Had to lower the image quality a bit to post on Tumblr, but you get the idea. I bought a nice gold frame, so I’m going to frame it tonight and document it in Fabienne’s home in the next few days (depending on her schedule.) So photos of that should be coming soon! I spent a long time fiddling around with the printer and print quality. I was able to get a really nice print, and it actually looks a lot better printed than it does on screen.
Time for a spring break pick me up!

Folding prints all day everyday.
"From the 1910s through the 1960s, many patients at the Willard Asylum for the Chronic Insane left suitcases behind when they passed away, with nobody to claim them. Upon the centers closure in 1995, employees found hundreds of these time capsules stored in a locked attic. Working with the New York State Museum, former Willard staffers were able to preserve the hidden cache of luggage as part of the museums permanent collection.
Photographer Jon Crispin has long been drawn to the ghostly remains of abandoned psychiatric institutions. After learning of the Willard suitcases, Crispin sought the museums permission to document each case and its contents. In 2011, Crispin completed a successful Kickstarter campaign to help fund the first phase of the project, which he recently finished. Next spring, a selection of his photos will accompany the inaugural exhibit at the San Francisco Exploratoriums new location.
Crispins photographs restore a bit of dignity to the individuals who spent their lives within Willards walls. Curiously, the identities of these patients are still concealed by the state of New York, denied evento living relatives. Each suitcase offers a glimpse into the life of a unique individual, living in an era when those with mental disorders and disabilities were not only stigmatized but also isolated from society.”
