Image taken at McFaddens castle in Upstate NY. The model is my cousin, who is also a very creative photographer.

This old castle was once a health resort in the 1800’s, a hospital for the metally insane after the war and purportedly a prison for German POW’s after WWII (I need to confirm all these facts, but this is information from people around the nearby town). The inspiration was a ghostly view into a time past and of a place of forgotten beauty, yet rigid social hierarchy… like that age, this building that once helped define that gilded age has crumbled from existence.
