Diane Deaton-Street

Diane Deaton-Street took this month’s cover photograph in a patient room of the defunct Dixmont Hospital outside of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Originally called the Western Pennsylvania Hospital for the Insane, Dixmont was one of the first asylums in the United States. Shortly after the picture was taken, the building was demolished to make way for a Wal-Mart Supercenter. Deaton-Street lives in Louisville, Kentucky.
