Watch: Ghosts of the Asylums
Jeremy Harris takes photographs and artifacts from deep inside abandoned mental hospitals.
Mother Jones' cover story for May/June 2013, "Schizophrenic. Killer. My Cousin.", features a collection of eerie, yet beautiful photographs of abandoned mental hospitals. They're the work of Jeremy Harris, a Brooklyn photographer who began sneaking into these buildings in 2005. In this video Jeremy explains the project and shows off some of the hospital artifacts he's collected along the way.
Note: the video production was originally a co-production between Mother Jones and Tumblr's Storyboard. But following the interview, Tumblr announced it was closing Storyboard.
