Suspiciously Lovable ‘Ghost Photographs’ Will Haunt Your Dreams byAngela Deane
If you’ve ever dug through a mound of found photographs, you’ve undoubtably experienced the strange sensation of encountering the banal and intimate moments of complete strangers. Whether the immortalized image is from a birthday party, a summer afternoon or a trip to a theme park, personal photos flood the viewer with an overwhelming sense of both camaraderie and alienation.
This odd space of in-betweenness is the inspiration for one of the cutest and most terrifying photo projects we’ve seen in a while: Angela Deane's “Ghost Photographs.” How can memories that don’t belong to you feel so familiar? Can we acquire memories we’ve never experienced? Deane poses these weighty questions through suspiciously sweet looking photographs. Be warned, adorable as they may seem, rest assured they’ll haunt you later.
