    Yes, having children institutionalized is very sad.

    I actually saw your set before and I think you posted on my set as well -- I was just surprised I missed this thread. I really loved the ceilings in that place.

    Beautiful set. Quite sad indeed that they would put kids in there.

    Wonderful mural. All too often through history and continuing, perhaps it is the committors and keepers who ought to be treated.

    Alan Pogue at the Texas Center for Documentary Photography was commissioned to document conditions for a class action suit Legal Case Work Mentally Ill Prisoners v South Carolina. The photos were shot with an 8x10. Alan's portfolio is quite impressive and well worth browsing.
