This Is What A Psychiatric Hospital That Has Been Abandoned For Years Looks Like

0

A spooky sight to behold! This is what a psychiatric hospital that has been abandoned for years looks like. Complete with bowling alley and a theater, the hospital shows just how much nature has weathered it over time as paint peels from the walls and the mattress gather dust. The shots were captured by Will Ellis, 26, a photographer based in Brooklyn, New York, with a Canon 5D Mark II with a long exposure to get the full range of shadow creeping across the scenes. The photos were taken at the hospital in summer 2015 at a psychiatric hospital in upstate New York.
