'A Serenade to The Ghost' is a series of photographs that sit alongside a lucid poem.
Dealing with the loss of a lover, this emotive series harks back to the evocative writing of Edgar Allen Poe with unique portraiture inspired by artists such as Francesca Woodman and Edward Munch.
The photographs delve deep into the inner psyche of a man trying to come to terms with the death of a partner, this translates into images that evoke emotions such as separation, closure and how we move from this life to the next.
*Shortlisted for the NY Art Marathon Prize 2011*
Each piece sits individually as well as part of the bigger collection of work. A book of the images is due to be published later in 2012 as well as a solo exhibition in later 2011.
Please note this is a limited edition print run of 10, numbered and signed by the artist. All printed by the artist himself on archival paper.
