Hellingly Hospital.

Throwback, unreleased image of my favourite piece of graffiti. So simple, yet so haunting.

Once used as a school, it was shut down after confirmed cases of sexual abuse from teachers on young male students.

Still to this day, although externally destroyed, I haven’t been anywhere with as many belongings still as they was left behind here. This library and the literally 1000’s of books, is the best thing I’ve seen whilst exploring these buildings. I read a report recently of someone getting caught whilst stealing the books from the library. Why do people need to do that? You should feel lucky enough to be there, let alone stealing the stuff you’re there to shoot. This is why I’m so skeptical about giving location details out. Unless I know them personally, how do I know they won’t go and destroy it? I wouldn’t want to be the reason it gets burnt down or something, all because I gave away the location to someone I didn’t know. © Ryan Patrick Photography
