The work of Jeremy Harris, specifically his series titled 'American Asylums, Moral Architecture in the 19th Century,' will send a chill down people's spines. It doesn't just capture American asylums, but abandoned American asylums. Whether or not people believe in ghosts and hauntings, it will be hard not to feel slightly uneasy when browsing through Jeremy Harris' photo series.

Hailing from San Francisco, California, and based in "a semi-haunted (by friendly ghosts) rustic brownstone in Crown Heights Brooklyn, New York," as written on his website, Jeremy Harris now has an endless supply of inspiration. Full of rubble, old signage and peeling walls, these mental institutions hark back to another era in which alternative methods were used to treat patients.
