Spectral Visions From the Past
Ghost Allusions During A Photographic Odyssey in Bodie, California
by Constance Parker
When visiting the ghost town of Bodie, one immediately is transported through time and experiences a sense of what life might have been for the thousands of people who called Bodie home. This once bustling place produced more than 100 million dollars in gold in its hey day. Perhaps because of its remote location, so many artifacts were left behind. It is so easy for visitors to sense the presence of another type of energy while strolling through the streets and peeking in the windows of the remaining buildings. The photographs in this book capture the sense of ghosts peeking back. Each image has at least one ghost in it, and captures an essence of personalities that might have existed in the environment. The creation of this book was a natural evolution and marriage of my photo restoration business, passion for all things old and fine art photography. It is a wonderful glimpse into a life that once was.
