“The Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum in Weston,WV project is still underway. After two visits to this historical site I am not satisfied with the photographs and will be returning for a more thorough journey – I hope to be able to put together a photo book in the future which will tell stories without many words. That place is extraordinary!”

One of her favorites to document are the vanishing Quiet places or what I like to refer to as our silent sanctuaries. This includes location data, field recordings and notations of any manmade noises(any noise pollution ) and often includes remote locations and areas being encroached by civilization. One day these places may disappear, We want to document as many as possible. You can see this project at http://www.silentsanctuaries.com
