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, fragments of chalk were made from tiny marine creatures and the calcareous remains of algae, and fronds of seaweed have broken off from underwater forests that teem with life. 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.
