The old Whitby Psychiatric Hospital was a model for the treatment of mental illness. But like many institutions of its kind, methods and practices became outdated. The many buildings fell into disrepair and eventually bulldozed to make room for cookie-cutter new homes.
This is a book which attempts to give a brief history of the Hospital and to show through images, its last days. A historical record.
I am Deputy Art Director at the Toronto Star newspaper in Toronto, Canada with over 25 years of newspaper, magazine and corporate design experience. In addition to my role at the Star, I am also a travel photographer and writer who prefers unique places, sites and situations. Through my work I help the viewer not only understand the captured images and stories but also experience them. I use Blurb to create memorable books of my travel experiences as well as a powerful presentation tool for clients ranging from automobile executives, to medical practitioners to fine art collectors.
