Featured Photograph – Ghost Life #9: Morning Ritual

Ghost life #9: Morning ritual

Today’s photo is the ninth in a series of ten depicting scenes of my life in different rooms.  I wanted to show the notion of passage, of fleetingness and to give a notion of how short life is. Although we are the ghosts in the image, in my mind, the ghost, the eternal, is really the camera. In a sense, the viewer is stuck in time, looking at things at a slower speed, immobile, forever. Meanwhile we are just passing by, immaterial and brief in a material world, solid and opaque. This was a single shot with timed movements. (ISO 100, 28mm, F/14, 5 seconds)
