For a wonderfully eerie ongoing project entitled Ghost Photographs American artist Angela Deane alters found photos, turning people into anonymous phantoms. The results range from amusing and delightful to wistful and melancholy. Deane’s painted snapshots reveal that ghosts go on vacation, attend prom and even go trick-or-treating. They have parties and gather to watch ballgames. It turns out that ghosts are just like the rest of us and we’re all ghosts ourselves.
"These ghosts are the ghosts of moments, of days, of experiences. With the specifics of identity obscured by paint I like to imagine it’s as if you and I can partake in the memory, share in the experience, allow the snapshot to seem familiar. Let’s share some memories, shall we?"
