Ward by PolarExtremesStudio Ward by PolarExtremesStudio
Photographer: Brett Jackman
Digital Developing: Brett Jackman

Theme: “Modern Ruins”
Concept: Anything condemned, torn down, half torn down, destroyed, burnt out. Representation of beauty in all things regardless of their state

Comments: This is a very old hospital. Now closed it was previously used as a mental asylum, a tuberculosis hospice for the terminally ill and a specialist facility for that world wide flu epidemic in the 1960’s I think

Did a shoot with a vampire theme in the morgue there which I have yet to upload and some promo shots for a band who were there making a music video. Took this series walking around the grounds and the wards

Creepy place, had the taste of a dirty coin in my mouth there all day. Hadn’t felt that since Dachau Concentration Camp and I thought I was imagining it till everybody else said they were experiencing the same thing

Location: Abandoned Mental Asylum, NSW Australia

Tools of the Trade: Nikon D700 (the camera Leonardo Da Vinci would have used)

The Full Series:

Amazing place. I can see where it would give one the creeps, but it seems perfect for the types of shoots you describe. Wish I could find a place like that near here.

thank you
it is hard to find those sort of places, and sadly they are never nearby ;-)
