things left behind

I'm quite taken by this project of photographer, John Crispin documenting the contents of suitcases left behind at the Willard Asylum in New York state. The cases were put into storage when their owners were admitted to the Willard between 1910 and the 1960s when the asylum was shut down. It's amazing to see the things that people packed to take with them and the picture it paints of them.
