Joey With Clock. Kings Park NY
Photo and caption by Bennett Richards
My brother-in-law Joey holding a clock he had bought for his father 45 years ago. His father just recently passed away at the age of 90. Joey has suffered from Schizophrenia for most of his lifetime and has resided at the Kings Park Institution for over 25 years. After we cleaned out his fathers possessions Joey only had room for this clock he had given his father long ago to remind him of the normal life he lived before this terrible disease took it from him forever. This photo was taken as I dropped him off at the Kings Park Institution. Joey is now essentially alone.
Location: Kings Park Asylum, Kings Park NY.
