Well, I have been very fortunate to shoot a number of hospitals for construction companies, architects, medical device companies, etc etc, but this was the first time to shoot “before” & “afters” of a dilapidated hospital. Especially one with so much history and presence. As long as I have lived in Charleston I have always noticed this overtly tall and sharply contrasted building. It seems I have heard so many rumors about this building over the years and it is just great to see something is actually happening now. The grounds and entire property really have a great vibe. Can’t wait to see what it looks like after the restoration.
