Oh, these make me so happy… and kinda sad. Found photos starring gouachie ghosts by American artist Angela Deane. All of these pieces are from her Ghost Photographs series. Angela refers to them as “ghosts of moments” – special events gone by which may or may not be remembered fully and or correctly – which is why they make me happy… and kinda sad. Now if you’ll excuse me I’m going to go pore over old family photos and do my very best to remember what was happening and who the hell all of those people are!

{thanks to Carol for pointing me to Angela’s portfolio}

    Ah, life is full of experiences, how can we remember all of them in great detail?

    This really taps in to why I love old family photos but why I also feel melancholy about them. The loss of memories, etc….reminds me of the movie “Inside Out” and how certain memories just fall into a pit and fade away…(I cried through the entire movie…LOL)

    Hahaha these are incredible!! But I get what you mean, they made me happy first and then a bit sad. Really interesting.
