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?"

To view many more images from this haunting series follow Angela Deane here on Tumblr at ghostphotographs. Prints are available by contacting Deane through her personal website.

sad.

My lovely niece had her innocence tested very recently by a bully at her school. This was an ongoing problem since last school year with escalating frequency and there was no separation between them, while in the classroom, even after incidents were brought to the school’s attention. Long story short she is starting anew and transition is ongoing.

I’ve never wished for a more painful death to this kid’s abusers, as well as the authorities at the school for their lack of action, compassion, or empathy on their part.

I haven’t been able to stop thinking about this. No matter what happens, rule number one is that people are fucking assholes. That is not a lesson we were ready to teach her yet.
