Two years ago I wrote a story about Jason Baker, a daring photographer who enjoys taking pictures of old insane asylums, hospital wards, and other spooky institutions. We put together a slideshow of his photos here.

Some of Jason's most haunting images are now being shown at Gallery X in New Bedford. They're part of the "Decayed Beauty" exhibit that runs from Sept. 19 to 30, and two opening receptions will be held this weekend: Saturday, Sept. 22 from 6 to 10 p.m., and Sunday, Sept. 23 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

If you want to see what abandoned buildings look like on the inside (without getting arrested), Jason's photos are worth checking out.
