A couple of weeks ago I ordered Paper Stages, a book available through Live Art Development Agency and you can read more about it here on the Paper Stages website:

The book is described as not a book, but ‘a festival’ of performance pieces.

The stipulation when buying a copy of the book is that you should donate or volunteer one hour of time to pay for it and the team encourage the donation to be either creative or community based.

My donation of time resulted in ‘Ghost’, a free, small paper based work which is based around one of the 120 photographs I took at Empty Shop HQ a few months ago in which there appears to be a figure of a man in the center of the photograph looking into the room.

‘Ghost’  examines the duality between analogue and digital in our lives today, between rational and instinct.

This photo came back from the developing lab a few weeks ago. I had 3 or 4 images similar to this and can’t work out what has caused the effect.

I took the photo using TLR Haking’s Halina 120 film camera and it was only one roll of film in the batch that I sent to be developed that was affected like this.

This week I’m posting  a poll hoping that somebody might have  some answers about what’s caused the problem. Thanks!
