Jon Crispin photographed the suitcases left behind by patients at the Willard Asylum for the Insane. When patients died, their suitcases, with all their worldly possessions, were locked in an attic and forgotten, until an employee of the mental hospital discovered them. They date from 1910 to 1960. See more of the images below.
