Thankfully, the owner turned out to be a really nice guy and he let us do our photo shoot inside the building and did not try to stifle our creativeness. He even provided the straight jacket and some of the restraints that were actually used in the facility in its prime! The models that are in this shoot are Donald Bugsby and Alyssa Seward.
