NEW Asylum Book

Most of you know that along with being an avid photographer, I am also a consummate bookworm. Recently while perusing Amazon's recommendations for me, "Asylum: Inside the Closed World of State Mental Hospitals" came up and I bought it immediately. I then took the time to check out Chris Payne's photography at www.chrispaynephoto.com where I was not disappointed. His work is amazing and his documentation of the demise of the state hospital is unparalleled. With a foreword by renowned neurologist Oliver Sacks (of "Awakenings" fame), this book is a must have in any library.
