Portfolio > Ghost

This series is inspired by many personal experiences with rare spectres, powerful deities, sylphs, phantoms or angelic drifters. Interpreted on 35mm black and white film and antique textiles. GHOST was created in response to the encounters with these spectral guides over the span of 2004-2017.

These experiences deeply confounded my sensibility. Questioning why I was selected to be the collector of these visions? These encounters of beings whom float upon the emotion and light in bright bundles of air and leave traces behind, small marks or signs of being there.

These images are small moments connecting the years, to help eliminate grief and fear. I embarked on the project of documenting these moments beyond the poetry and storytelling. Photographing the form to represent a deity, a ghost or a lost angel.

Each image came together almost effortlessly and the visitations seemed to slow down. In the darkroom I would feel a presence looming, while the latent image appeared in the chemistry. I searched for a certain fabric that lived upon the skin, to become part of the soul. The lighting used would be reflective of the bursts that startled the dark.
