The first signs of frost were appearing in the early November mornings. Another layer of fallen leaves had begun to pile up on the many layers already decaying on the disused paths and sidewalks of Norwich State Hospital. The air was sweet with the smell of the woods, which occasionally wafted in from the broken windows. We took a tunnel that ended in a basement, went upstairs, and worked our way back to the central portion of the hospital. We had arrived relatively late in the day and only had 4 hours of sunlight, which passed in what seemed like 4 minutes as I tried to focus more on photographing than security, documentation, and all other kinds of distractions.
The scenes inside these crumbling walls were equally intriguing as they were beautiful, which kept leading me back here time and time again.
