I stumbled across a fantastic resource recently…
Photographer Jon Crispin has been given the opportunity to…
…photograph the suitcases left behind by patients at the now closed Willard Psychiatric Center in New York.
The Willard Suitcases project is absolutely fascinating! I find myself looking at the contents of the cases and trying to imagine what these people were like, why they were there, and how comes they left their meagre personal possessions behind or that they weren’t claimed after their death 😦

I’m really coming round to the idea of writing an historical novel. I love the idea of taking a real persons life and filling in the gaps, recreating the parts we don’t know. It would be kind of like being there at the time .
What historic figure do you wish you’d been around?
