About Opacity

This site is dedicated to documenting various abandoned places through both text and photographs; recording their transformations through time before they are demolished. The abundance of abandoned asylums and psychiatric hospitals in the New England area create the bulk of the locations here; these beautiful state funded structures are vast and complex, giving insight to both the humanity and mistreatment towards the mentally ill over the past two centuries.

Though not official, these locations could be contacted for film and documentary purposes for your next project.

The Opacity site has a wonderful and detailed search function, along with detailed information on these locations with accompanied photographs.
