In this series, Apparitions, I sought to really morph the overall atmosphere of everyday locations by inserting a haunting and somewhat brooding subject. This subject can represent a number of things, and this will differ for each viewer. For me personally, I believe this figure represents the lost souls in our society, wether that be lost in the sense of falling victim to the constant molding of opinions and perceptions imposed on us through media and other means, or it be souls which were quite literally lost and have been stripped away from our reality. To me, these can almost be one in the same, because if we cannot form our own ideas and are no longer truly controlling our own lives but instead following a path that has already been paved for us, then are we really and truly alive at all?
This is a series of self portraits, all taken at various locations which hold meaning to myself personally.
