Urbex #11

Thu May 30, 2013, 8:00 AM


"The places where one could be both mad...and safe."



Abandoned Hospitals and Asylums are one of the most popular sites amongst Urban Explorers and whilst we don't get the same variety of choice in the UK as Americans might do, we do have a fair share of interesting forgotten locations. But in the USA, from the mid-nineteenth century to the early twentieth century, over 250 institutions for the 'insane' were built. These places housed over half a million patients... Imagine the secrets the remaining walls hold! The reason for the now abandonment of these once thriving hives of activity was the move towards more community based care, more developed medications and of course, stricter laws.

Featured Photographer :devstevieophotography:






Urban Exploration is the exploration of man-made structures. Usually these are abandoned ruins, or components that used to be part of everyday life but are no longer seen on a regular basis by the human eye. This series of articles aims to highlight exactly what Urban Exploration is, how it's achieved and the some of the best Urbex Photographers here on deviantART.

I've always been so interested in asylums back in the day, so I loved this!

I don't know why but I love to see abandoned buildings. Too bad that there aren't any like this near me. :)

Great feature as always. :clap:
