Architectural photographer CHRISTOPHER PAYNE was granted unprecedented access to document the abandoned buildings and interiors of state-funded mental hospitals over a period of six years. and the resulting book, ASYLUM: INSIDE THE CLOSED WORLD OF MENTAL HOSPITALS (MIT Press, 2009), has become something of a phenomenon, touching people in unexpected ways. ASYLUM is his first gallery show in New York.
