Read More About Ghost in the Shell

These photographs are part of an ongoing series in which I explore the after life of organic objects found at the tideline. These objects are inanimate but once had a life: shells once housed molluscs and fragments of chalk were made from tiny marine creatures and the calcareous remains of algae. Using slow shutter speeds, I contrasted the stillness of the objects with the movement of sea water as a ghostly echo of the life these objects once had.
