American Asylums by Jeremy Harris
- Caroline Kurze
With his series ‘American Asylums’, photographer Jeremy Harris takes a look at the derelict architecture of abandoned mental hospitals. The images highlight the sometimes bizarre structures that were built as a form of therapy – serving as a reminder of the thousands of individuals who lived in these places, some for the majority of their lives. Scattered around the East Coast and New England, these sites have been ignored, forgotten, or destroyed.
