Northern State was a working hospital from the early 1900's up until its closure in the early 1970's. The patients admitted during that time had various illnesses that were either misunderstood, or where the public didn't know what to do with them. Ever since the hospital's closing, the buildings have slowly been taken back by nature, but still show traces of its history, as well as new life blooming from the wear and tear of the buildings' structure.
This series reflects on how the buildings and surrounding areas of the once functioning hospital will forever be tied with the patients who lived there. All of them were diagnosed, treated, and then left to their own devices.
