Sneaking Suspicions | Asylum Green

Jet Blue knows that I love to travel, especially in the dead of winter.  This year their winter sale presented the opportunity to fly to Tennessee for only $96! Needless to say, myself and two friends headed south for a 5-day trip to see as many abandoned gems as we could. We started our trip in…

Record From The Past | Asylum Green

I was recently digging through an old organizer and was fortunate enough to find the login for my old photobuckets.

Before venturing south, at 18, I’d…

No H8 | Asylum Green

Over the years I’ve encountered many people in a variety of abandoned buildings; scrappers, high school students, drug addicts, homeless, geo trackers, photographers, art students, families*, but most interesting of all have been graffiti artists. It’s always a disappointment when a place you love gets covered in spray painted dicks, phone numbers and lewd comments….

Relapse General | Asylum Green

It’s no secret that I am on the road almost 24/7 searching for something to point my camera at. Rarely, though, do I get to return to location that I truly enjoyed. In December of 2011 I ventured to Western Pennsylvania to visit this general hospital and a few others locations. This May I was…

Family Friendly Psych Center | Asylum Green

Early in my exploring days, (aka the days of forums, text messaging on flip phones and other pre-historic technology, you youngins) I discovered Kings Park Psychiatric Center. The campus from aerial maps was sprawling, including an amazing tower that I immediately needed to see.   At one time, King Park had over 100 buildings. I…

Handcuffs at Titicut | Asylum Green

Everyone has that one friend who takes things to a totally insane level. At some point in my life I met that friend and he became my go-to dude when I want to do anything high risk. I have done a lot of things that have made my stomach turn with anxiety- traversed collapsing floors,…

Burning Caskets | Asylum Green

While thumbing through my Instagram feed a few months back I noticed photos of an abandoned hospital on fire. Never a good post to see.

Autopsy For Dinner | Asylum Green

Our nations capitol city is a wonderful but terrible place, all at the same time.

Sitting in D.C., away from the hub-bub of ‘MERICA is a huge abandoned…

The Golden Light of a Maryland Asylum | Asylum Green

They say that the best time to shoot is when the sunrises and the sunsets. When it comes to abandoned buildings, this rule may be true, however you find that it’s not always conducive to being sneaky times to get in and out of buildings. Luckily, this classic Tuberculous hospital lended its walls and peeling…

An Exclusive Relationship with Abandonment | Asylum Green

An Exclusive Relationship with Abandonment We all have constants in life that we enjoy, and others we don’t. While indulging in Jameson and reflecting on where on earth the past few years have gone, I realized something; The most consistent thing in my life has been abandoned buildings. I realize this may sound dark, it’s…

The Seeing Occulus | Asylum Green

A long snowy drive led me to this hidden gem, a small state school in New York with a beautiful Occulus inside. Anxious to see this elusive abandoned building I had heard so much about, I begged a friend to make it our last stop on my two-week-stint living on her couch. I just want…

Sterilization and Discontinued History | Asylum Green

Nestled in a quiet corner of Connecticut, this state training school has a dark past with a history of sterilization for those who were mentally challenged. Some might saying they were very cutting age for the time period. Located an hour from where I live, I’ve made dozens of trips here, but the most memorable…
