Ward 17

Further to the “Looney Bin” series, McRae presents a continuing visual comment on the idea of the assylum and insanity.  These images were shot in a dis-used psychiatric hospital, more specifically in the building named, Ward 17.  Here McRae introduces the viewer to the “theatre”, played out by the protagonists…the Psychiatrist, the nurse, the parents, the patients and so on…. As McRae says, “thank God it’s over there and not here!”.
