Soundscapes

The drill of the needle as it breaks the skin.

The thrum
of the ECT
machine.

The sandpaper swish of canvas frocks.

Betty's tongue
as it snails
the resident
wallpaper.

The wind riding ice on the hospital roof.

David's sucking on the ribbons of his care packages.

The screaming
from
the
quiet
room.

--------------------------

The next in a series shot at a disused asylum - the Royal Derwent Psychiatric Hospital at New Norfolk, Tasmania.

The images in the series feature examples from a collection of 77 poems penned by Karen Knight, Postcards From The Asylum (published by Pardalote Press). These disarming poems were inspired by Karen's experiences as an inmate at the Royal Derwent in 1969.

This series should win a prize! It is definitely reminiscent of my 3 months as a student nurse spent at Concord State Hospital. Actually, one of the best rotations of my nursing education, and the saddest.

You've sharpened your narative style even more during my absence.. Smile

A dificult subject intelligently handled and artfully executed. The words and images compliment each other perfectly.
