Sanatorium Dans le Foret

Author sophos9 - Last updated: 09.11.2013

Arrived early at this place with no sleep for over 24 hours, left my tripod in the car and from early, it was raining hard! The light never really woke up so skies were dark grey.

This place is large, trashed yet still beautiful and full of photographic opportunities. We had no time limits here so just walked the entire site, had a sleep – ate some food, smoked some cigarettes and kept in contact via radio when shooting different places. If you can, go see this place – the history is amazing also…

Must’ve been a wonderfull trip. Very relaxed way of shooting like that :) We still have to visit a location where security isn’t that tight. Until now it was mostly enter, shoot quick and leave before getting caught (or getting caught, like on our last trip, lol). In Holland, the problem is that most of the buildings get to be torn down almost immediately, or rebuild as soon as possible, while in Belgium, the places we visited so far were the places where there was private security, or they where actively busy working on while we were in it :). But in due time we will have our fair share. Its just a bit difficult planning while having a job and two kids :-D

This location is pretty famous here in the states for being haunted. I’m pretty skeptical about that type of thing. I did pay for a photo tour of this place. There were about 12 of us and I rarely ran into anyone the entire time I was here.

In 1953 Orchard House, which opened in 1939 as an admissions Unit, was in fact a separate hospital. In contrast to the custodial approach of the main hospital it was run as an open hospital.
