When I was a teenager, I spent quite a few nights with friends exploring an abandoned mental institution in my hometown. Apparently, photographer Jeremy Harris digs that sort of thing too. His engaging and provocative photo series titled American Asylum is hanging in my favorite San Francisco cafe, Progressive Grounds. Seeing the photos in this context, above the cream and sugar for example, make them especially surreal. Link (Flash site)
