Lewis's photographs present us with the wasted remnants of 19th century disciplinary institutions. Distressed and abandoned the work has become a physical reminder of an oppressive and frequently cruel discourse which still haunts contemporary dealings with the mentally ill. Shards and scraps of crinkled house paint collect in flaky piles on the floor. Doors are ajar, opening onto views down the corridors along which patients were once led, and into the rooms in which they were once confined. The old asylums have long been disused, and their empty spaces, presented with an intense psychological charge, bristle with a disturbing tension. Lloyd Lewis's photographs have all been shot on 5x4 Negative and have not been altered digitally. Lloyd has won a host of photography awards and has had work featured in many publications including, Creative Review and Professional Photographer magazine. His work is in private collections across Europe.
