I wish I could show this to everyone who questioned why I went to school
for Architecture then Photography, as if they were unrelated and isolated.
For me, the marriage is obvious.

A few months ago I came across the work of photographer Christopher Payne and
can't stop thinking about his images. The photos in his 'Asylum' series are particularly
breathtaking and I can't wait for my copy of his book to arrive. Between 2002 and 2008,
Payne photographed seventy mental hospitals in thirty states, gathering images of aging
and abandoned institutions. Trained as an architect, Payne's photography naturally
gravitates towards historical and industrial architecture. What I enjoy so much about his
hospital series is how he documented the silence and calm of these places that we've all
imagined as terrifying, uneasy and sometimes violent. His photos capture moments that
allow the viewer to transport back to a time where patients, doctors and staff still walked
the halls. Throughout these spaces, the colours, abandoned objects and equipment are
signifiers of the past and provide a humanistic element that helps describe the quality of
life inside the seemingly ominous architecture.

This is one of my favourite Stevie Wonder songs.
It's a good song to put you in a better mood.
I was recently given a copy of the compilation album, Dark Was The Night.
There a few good tracks, including this one that has made its way into my current rotation.
