United States of AAAAHHHHHMERICA – The US’ most haunted places
Welcome to the United States of AAAAAHHHHHMERICA with a tour of the US’ most haunted spots.
The objects and places pictured include a ghost ship on the Ohio River, an empty mental asylum, a deserted dental practice and a closet full of children’s dresses in an abandoned house
Johnny Joo is a 26-year-old photographer from Ohio who braved a trip to each of the spooky sites.
He said: “The scariest place I have been would probably have to be Forest Haven Asylum, though that is due to its dark history.
“I have founded detailed records from asylum patients and incidents happening through the wards.
“I have also found many people’s personal records and social security numbers left behind. I’m not sure which one of those is creepier.
“You could say I’m a bit strange, but I feel completely at peace being in places like this. It helps me to create the exact feeling I really love to create through my work.
“I’ve seen a few strange things over time, and felt what seemed to be the presence of a past life still lingering.
“Many people expect every building to be haunted by something, when that is not truly the case.
“There are plenty of creepy areas in this world, but I will always love digging for the historic pieces and putting together the puzzle of some past life I never knew.”
