Jon Crispin fotografiert seit rund zwei Jahren alte und längst vergessene Koffer aus der verlassenen Willard Anstalt, über das Projekt hatte ich schon ein paar mal gebloggt. Das Projekt ist jetzt abgeschlossen, Collectors Weekly hat ein Interview und einige bisher unveröffentlichte Fotos:

Dmytre’s suitcase is another that I really like, it’s the last case I did. Dmytre was very moving. He was Ukrainian and clearly brilliant. He had notebooks filled with drawings of sine waves and mathematical things like that. There’s a wedding picture of Dmytre and his wife, and she’s holding a bouquet of fake flowers, which were also in the case.

Dmytre was interesting because he got arrested by the Secret Service because he went to Washington, D.C. and said that he was actually married to the wife of the president. He said he was married to Margaret Truman. And what’s great is there’s a little Washington monument thermometer in the case, so clearly he bought a little tchotchke on his trip to D.C. and then later got arrested for saying that he was Margaret Truman’s husband.
