The Ghost Project

“What lies just outside of our vision? Are there ghosts all around us, just out of sight? Are they lost souls, hiding just outside our normal vision? What if we could see them? If I died tomorrow, what would my ghost do? Where would it go?”

At the start of 2012 Mara came face to face with the very real possibility of becoming the last surviving member of her family when her mother became critically ill with cancer. This possibility of familial solitude caused her to question what might happen beyond death. If ghosts are echoes of our perceived identities then what would her ghost do and why? This series explores the artists personal thoughts alongside universal themes raised around loss and transitions.

The images created are rendered in black and white, highlighting the shift in reality, and are available as limited edition prints.
