best photojournalism


Reasons that my college is better and prettier than yours: 

1) Because I go to Ohio University. 

2) Because it’s incredibly beautiful. 

3) Because my college is one of the best for journalism and photojournalism, and I love what I do. 

4) I can get photographs like this. And during a snow day. 


Abandoned Playboy House

These are the sinister photos of an abandoned swingers mansion, covered in broken glass and daubed in graffiti. The house, in Chattanooga, Tenn., was the former home of strip club owner Billy Hull, who was jailed for murder in the ’70s. In 1972, nearly 10,000 people visited the mansion, which was famous for the bunny-shaped pool that took up nearly half the house. (Caters)

Abandoned Tennessee mental hospital

A freelance photographer captured the eerie setting of an abandoned American mental asylum after avoiding security guards at the premises. The 32-year-old, who wishes to remain anonymous, managed to sneak through an unlocked door and gain access to the state-owned asylum, which dates back to the 19th century.

The asylum, Western State Mental Hospital, in Tennessee, was one of the last to be built in the area and became the least funded. The hospital’s population grew from hundreds, in the 1890s, to thousands, in the 1960s, as patients were institutionalized for decades. (Caters News)

Cat visits every national park

This adventurous feline really is an outdoors cat — as he is currently making his way around every national park in the United States. So far, Vladimir the cat has visited 52 of America’s 59 national parks, which have included deserts, mountains, forests, beaches and even volcanoes.

That has meant trips to Yosemite, the Grand Canyon and the Great Smoky Mountains for adventurous Vladimir, who is traveling in a 1989 Toyota motor home with his owners, Cees and Madison Hofman, from the Bay Area in California. Through their website, Our Vie (their RV is nicknamed “Vie”), and social media, Cees and Madison are documenting their travels. (Caters News)

Abandoned “Hills Have Eyes” set

Creepy photographs reveal the abandoned gas station from the horror film “The Hills Have Eyes.” The eerie movie set in Agadir, Morocco, stands relatively unchanged since it was featured in the 2006 flick that saw a family lured to their doom.

Now abandoned, the gas station played a pivotal part in the protagonists’ demise, as it was there that they were advised to take a shortcut. The reroute would lead them into a trap where psychotic, cannibalistic creatures would torture the family.

Photographer Bob Thissen, 31, visited the site earlier this month and revealed it was still stocked with American goods and is often mistaken for a working gas station. (Caters News)
