Looking Inside The Loony Bin

Jenny Hardcore, a fellow Londoner photograph, captured an abandoned asylum situated outside of London on film for her latest project.
Hardcore says the following of her images: 
"I am into the construction of images that cause the viewer to pause and think about what it is they are seeing. The abundance of decay in these buildings is a very overt invitation to consider their history – the colours or patterns glimpsed on pieces of wallpaper, the scraps of toilet roll left on a holder, the light switch still positioned on… all of these facts invite us to consider more than just what we can see now but what the people who lived and worked there saw on a daily basis. "
What do you think of Hardcore's work: creepy or creative?
