Spiritualism in the nineteenth century revealed, through spirit photography, that the human soul or consciousness exists independently from its material form. Today, photography can still embody the feeling of the disembodied self, as seen in the nineteenth century. Ghosts transform the relationship between what we usually see and what we do not. The appearance of a ghost is a physiological phenomenon that is otherwise obscure. The spirits captured today are not of deceased loved ones but symbolic manifestations of the past that refuses to stay dead. How I register these ghosts in my photographs is analogous to how we mourn the dead.
