Time-Lapse Journey into an Abandoned Asylum Created with 35,000 Photos

12th April 2012
One for all my fellow Urbexers!

Washington Times video producer Drew Geraci created this amazing time-lapse video of an asylum that was abandoned decades ago. They used a combination of traditional HDR, tone-mapping, and time-lapse techniques. Every single frame was a still photo, and they snapped 35,000 of them with two Canon 5D Mark II DSLRs over 7 months to complete the project.

"Opened in the early 1920s, the Asylum closed down and was abandoned decades ago. Rooms remain untouched – left as they were when the last of the employees departed. These buildings stand as a testament to the horrors and miss treatment that patients had to endure during the time of its operation.

Our 7 month journey into the Asylum led us on many adventures; from dodging security vehicles, ghostly figures and even a meth head. This is no place for the faint of heart. Asbestos blanketed every room we entered like new winter snow, so shooting was sometimes difficult."
