“Hello, I’m a Ghost”
It is said that photography is good at showing but bad at explaining. This paradox, where photographs speak volumes while remaining silent, is not a weakness but rather an inherent characteristic of the medium and perhaps its greatest strength.
“Hello, I’m a Ghost” is the debut issue of Density Magazine. In this issue, we encounter five artists who work in the Deep South, each employing distinct styles and approaches, and delving into a diverse range of subjects. The artists find themselves at various junctures of their artistic or commercial careers, with varying definitions and levels of success. What binds this eclectic group, is a steadfast commitment to this medium and an understanding of photography’s power and limitations in the role of communication and storytelling.
Each artist provides a glimpse into the stories they wish to convey and invites viewers to interpret and reflect upon these narratives without a guide beyond individual interpretation, imagination, and emotional connection.
While this silent medium may be “bad at explaining” in the conventional sense, it is incredibly effective at engaging the viewer’s imagination and leaving a lasting impression. In a world overflowing with words, these 5 artists choose to render their stories using an invaluable mode of expression, where the unspoken resonates more profoundly than anything that can be said.
Featured artists: Craig Mulcahy, Casey Joiner, Devin Lunsford, Benry Fauna, Jen Shaw
