Postcards From The Asylum #3

By rosie42  
Doctor says

Say after me,
Largactil.

I put madness
under my tongue
and swallow.


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


The third 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.

Another well seen shot. I like the shaft of light on the wall and the angles it creates. A nicely composed and exposed image.
