Photographer Interview: Algirdas Bakas

•••
How did you initially decide to move to China to work? What was the process and had you visited before? Before moving to China I worked in a major photography studio in Vilnius for three good years where I learned tricks of the trade but also realised that the commercial work I was doing was not inspiring me. I wanted to explore the planet and do travel p[...]

Photographic Interview: Chiara Dondi

•••
How do you feel today? Your biggest influences? A dream of yours? Your greatest fear? Your form of escape? A chosen superpower? Your experience of adulthood? How you deal with being lost? How would the end of the world look? What is beauty? See more of Chiara's work on her Tumblr: chiara-dondi-photo.tumblr.com

Enigmatic Images: Romy Maxime

•••
As a general rule of thumb, here at Ghost we avoid featuring fashion photography mostly due to the fact that the nature of the industry is such a polar opposite of our ethos, and also due to the fact that the internet is already saturated with near-identical fashion images. Like any rule, though, it’s there to be broken and Romy Maxime’s work does just tha[...]

Photographer Interview: Candace Karch

How do you think starting shooting in an era of film cameras affected your attitude towards photography? Photography is magic. I began taking photographs at an early age before I even knew that it would become my medium of choice. By the time I was in my teens I knew that the roll of film (that I struggled loading into any camera) would transform the way [...]

Looking for Wonderland: American Observations

•••
This beautiful series is made all the more enjoyable in the form a 124 page book Looking for Wonderland. Books are without a doubt one of the most satisfying ways of observing photographic work, arguably beaten only by framed archival prints. Scrutinising images on a computer screen is a far reach from the joys of touching the images in a well-produced pho[...]

Photographer Interview: Ricardo Kump

•••
Firstly, tell us a bit about yourself and what it is you do. I’m a self-taught landscape and documentary photographer from Brazil. I split my time between my motion design and photography career. How did you first get into photography? It came naturally, from travelling and wanting to depict the places I’ve been. But it wasn’t until my thirties that I s[...]

Photographer Interview: Jessica Summers

•••
Firstly, can you briefly describe who you are and what you do. I am a photographic artist, creating images that stimulate the imagination. I use source material collected over many years in a variety of different ways, to create images with and without a camera. You say that you’ve always been interested in collecting curiosities from nature, and [...]

Photographer Interview: Julia Borissova

•••
What are the themes of your artistic work and what inspires you?  What the image will be always depends on the theme which I explore. Listening to myself, I find something that resonates in me, some images, and I start working on their visualisation. Most of all I’m interested in the relationships between photography and time, memory, archive, death, spac[...]

Back to the Base. The Photography of Valerio Platania

•••
In his series, BASE, Platania looks at the connection between people and their environment, focusing on a specific kind of urban space, that of shopping malls and industrial parkways. These non-places reveal in strong colours and prefabricated materials the dissolution of the discreet and of the chaotic potential of public spaces. Trapped in this type of ano[...]

Photographer Interview: Sinziana Velicescu

•••
Firstly, tell us about who you are and what you do. Explain your practice in a nutshell. I am a photographer and filmmaker from Los Angeles California. My photography explores human intervention in nature within landscapes that have undergone political, social, or environmental change. I also direct music videos and make live action content for an arc[...]
