Abandoned asylums are undeniably captivating things. These were once proud places of great beauty, founded of noble intent and crafted with the utmost passion, left to wither away, succumbing to time and reclaimed by nature. Literal cities sprawled upon hundreds of acres, formed around the care of the mentally and physically in-need, now forsaken and left to rot. Though disused, they are not without purpose. Within these crumbling walls and darkened wards, we may yet glean some truths, not only of what life was in an era long past, but a better understanding of our own place and time. At times it is within darkness which we may see most clearly.

RUSTY TAGLIARENI AND CHRISTINA MATHEWS have been documenting abandoned historical properties throughout the United States for well over a decade. In 2009, they launched their website www.AntiquityEchoes.com, dedicated to archiving the locations they've filmed and generating public awareness about the plight befalling these beautiful and often significant buildings. Rusty and Christina are award winning best-selling authors, with work featured on many media outlets such as 60 Minutes and The New York Times. Prior to its dissolution, Rusty and Christina were heavily involved with the Preserve Greystone movement. They are trustees of PreservationWorks, a national nonprofit which advocated for the preservation and adaptive reuse of our country's last remaining Kirkbride-plan psychiatric institutions. Rusty and Christina are also regular contributors to Weird NJ magazine, a publication based out of New Jersey which celebrates the unusual histories and roads less traveled of the Garden State.
