About this project

This project is to raise funds in order to publish a photography book about the abandoned asylums in the eastern us. With their history and strange facts along with the photographs. These old abandoned buildings are quite fascinating and they have a unique story to tell. I have been exploring abandoned hospitals and asylums for some time now with the idea of publishing a book.

These buildings are always under the threat of being demolished or subject to vandals or fires, and  getting started as soon as possible is very important. There are so many that are already gone and their story gone as well. I am very excited to get started on the project. Once the eastern US edition is complete I will then get started on the second edition, and once the US editions are complete, I plan to travel to Poland and do some works there as well. Any and all that you give is very much appreciated. You are helping to make a dream come true. Thank you very much.

Please help us reach our goal!!
