Dan Haga's Urban Atrophy





A personal friend of CurlyRed’s, photographer Dan Haga wrote Urban Atrophy. For years he has captured on film run-down buildings all over the Mid-Atlantic, a lot of which is based right here in Maryland. From asylums to movie theaters, Dan Haga has explored all things decaying and left behind. He has a fascination with things many have chosen to ignore.

Urban Atrophy is categorized by the building type; Industrial, Religious, Military, Education, Medicine, or Corrections. Not only does the book has amazing pictures of places the general public has not access to, but it also has detailed descriptions of the history of the buildings.

Famous landmarks include: Spring Grove Hospital, Hebrew Orphan Asylum, Forts Armistead and Howard Lutheran Hospital, The Enchanted Forest, American Brewery in Baltimore, Seton Psychiatric Institute, St. Mary’s College “Hell House”, Victor Cullen, Springfield Hospital, Hagerstown Power Plant andThe Jones Falls Conduit.
