The Drugs Don't Work

By SlowSong
One of a series of photographs from inside a hospital where I used to work, but which was closed down and left to go to ruin. It became the home of drug addicts and vagrants, and it was very sad to see.

I was only allowed to take in a small compact camera and had to be accompanied by security, so this series was made up of grab shots.

Thank you for looking.

Even without the drugs on the sill you have a great shot! with them it is a great piece of work, stark, modern, thought provoking and scary.

A well chosen corner full of interesting textures as well as the pathos.
