Artist Manipulates Found Vintage Photos To Harness The Medium's Ghostly Spirit

There's something eerie about rummaging through a bin of found photos. Each faded print contains within it a singular moment at once intimate and unknown, in the past and yet strangely immortal. In a way, photography serves as a sort of time travel, transporting viewers to spaces and times they don't even know they're seeing.
