The 'Ghost House' series explores and documents the relationship between architecture and oppression in American slavery. Oppressive architectural structures (slave cabins) are being illuminated with strobes and photographed at night, the images then inverted to represent a negative or almost ghostly feel.
The project explores how these architectural structures continue to influence the contemporary landscape, its inhabitants, and our understanding of history. The project’s contribution is its documentation of a wide range of remaining physical structures of oppression. It also recognizes their historic value and raises questions about how architecture can be used to commemorate and reconcile a country’s past.
