lost in the fire.
Some women are
built from it."

"Is he cute…or does he just have a beard?"
These are questions we need to start asking ourselves (via jeniphyer)
“The Black Dahlia" was a nickname given to Elizabeth Short (July 29, 1924 – ca. January 15, 1947), an American woman and the victim of a gruesome and much-publicized murder. She acquired the moniker posthumously by newspapers in the habit of nicknaming crimes they found particularly colorful. Short was found mutilated, her body sliced in half at the waist, on January 15, 1947, in Leimert Park, Los Angeles, California.

A Photographer Finds the Ghost of Woodie Guthrie in an Abandoned Asylum

In the legend of folk icon Woody Guthrie, his final 15 years as a hospital patient tormented byHuntington’s Disease are often forgotten. The vibrant musician from Oklahoma boiled over with hundreds of songs of worker empowerment, and odes to the downtrodden burst from his guitar slapped with the words: “This Machine Kills Fascists.” His "This Land Is Your Land" is practically an alternative populist national anthem. Yet his final years are also a part of who he was, even as his mental and physical abilities deteriorated with the degenerative hereditary disease so that he couldn’t even hold a guitar. 

Photographer Phillip Buehler set out to document the abandoned Greystone Park Psychiatric Hospital in Morris Plains, New Jersey, where Guthrie was a patient from 1956 to 1961. Buehler has been photographing “modern ruins” for decades, and wanted to document this old 19th century ruined building before it faded from memory.

Musée Dupuytren, A Paris Museum Full of Medical Curiosities

The collection of medical museum, Musée Dupuytren, at Faculte de Medecine in Paris is full of thousands of anatomical curiosities, including wax models, creepy alcohol-preserved specimens (many of which are malformed), an amazing library and even medical wood carvings.

The museum was created in 1835 by Mathieu Orfila, often referred to as the “Father of Toxicology”, at the bequest of French anatomist and military surgeon, Baron Guillaume Dupuytren.

Art of Bleeding has posted a completely gory but utterly fascinating set of photos as has Joanna Ebenstein of Morbid Anatomy.
