road-tripping the end of the world

ghosts prototype

From a few weeks ago, the only print I’ve really been satisfied with from the fashion shoot with Diana Scott (www.dianascottphotography.com).

Ghosts (prototype one)

I seem to be drawing up a thread of “things below the surface” in my work lately, usually haunting or slightly malevolent; this work was about toying with the ideas of ghost photography and “repurposed” locations. There’s some thought in paranormal circles that renovation of haunted locales sometimes results in “increased activity”, I might play with this concept in terms of older locations that have been re-purposed or modified, the camera becoming the source of the “haunting”.

Whether this concept will play out in terms of a series, I’m not really sure at this point; I’m not entirely convinced it’ll function as a one-off like it is now.

    As I told you a while back, I enjoy the subtly of this photo. The ghost presence is not invasive and must be looked for. Also, like many spirit pictures, the viewer also questions whether or not it is an accident or on purpose.
