Light, scent, humidity.... Certain things brings us back to the good old memory in a second. Like a breeze which contains some kind of grassy smell brings me back to my childhood with friends at our secret base. I call such essences "ghost." These images are such fragments of memories that brings us back to the good old days. I used the method of Wet plate Collodion for this series because the rawness and the unevenness helps conceal the "ghost" in the image and emphasize the atmosphere. All images are made with 18x24cm ambrotype.
