Orb 5 (Long Island, New York)
Photographic Print signed by the artist on the back with an authentication certificate.
Artist statement: "The term 'orb' is typically used to describe circular artefacts in photographs - artefacts that have been interpreted by some as spirits. Despite being debunked and explained (most commonly as backscatter from precipitation or dust), there's a surprisingly widespread belief that orb photographs document the supernatural. There are organisations, conferences, hunts, field experts, detectors, and websites dedicated to spiritual orb photography.
This photographic search for something larger than ourselves was the starting point for this project. I photographed people in landscapes that are partly obscured by precipitation. The subjects are seen searching for or interacting with orbs, which are represented as dots covering parts of the scene.
The print is an archival pigment print.
