    I'm looking for the name of the photographer who photographed in an insane asylum in the 19th century. He would photograph people in their "normal" state and then also photograph them as how they should act according to society's dictates. These two images would then be given to the subject.

    Any ideas of his name? I just can't for the life of me remember!

    Yep, that's him! Thanks, Bob. It was just one of those things which you can't remember all day and you just dwell on it.

    thanks again!
