Day Ghosts are created with a cooler, translucent light. Here the mid-level camera records figure and shadow quite differently from one another. Body motion, ‘found’ light, and the interaction of forms in these accidental moments, create a visual story. Faded color and blurred motion add a gauzy, graphic quality. The images are of energetic spirits; walking, shopping, strolling, or carrying. The pictures express the radiance that can be found in these randomly encountered moments.
Both subjects in FIREFLY and MIAMI BEACH HULA HOOP GIRL, perform a repetitive motion recorded in a similar way. Controlled blur, selective focus and highlighting create a mood of memory rather than reality. The individual is de-personalized in the blur so that the viewer can project themselves into the blank.
