Cane Hill

Once in a while, you stumble upon something online that almost justifies the time you waste there. This happened to me, tonight, when I discovered this photojournal about Cane Hill, an abandoned psychiatric hospital in South London. Built in 1882, it was finally closed in 1991, and today has acquired a certain following among artists and tourists. It is still filled with equipment, furnishings, medical records, and countless physical testaments to the lives spent within its walls.

If you click on this link, please allow some time to take it all in. It’s worth it. Together, the photos and text are an incredibly poignant experience.
