Summary: Military Hospital is a photo book about an abandoned military hospital in Belgium, Ostend. The Belgian government built the large Hospital in 1913. It fulfilled a range of functions during two world wars, from caring to the wounded to a storage site under the control of the Germans. After the liberation of 1944,the British used it to care for wounded Canadian, British and Polish soldiers. It was returned to the Belgian authority in 1946 and became a Military Hospital during a long period of peace. The complex have stood empty since 1993. It gradually became a lonely and quiet place for people who inhabit the ragged edges of society. And it became the domein of animals that live and die in their own rythm. The buildings have deteriorated to become finally and definitly part of our collective history.
