Photographer Adam Voorhes was commissioned by Scientific American magazine to go to the Texas State Mental Hospital and photograph a normal, healthy, adult brain. While he was there, he discovered the hospital had a collection of over 100 diseased and malformed brains. Initially collected for further study, a lack of funding meant the brains had been in storage - some for decades - untouched. So Adam decided to photograph them, and the results are compelling, eerie, and strangely beautiful.
