Abstract:

"Ghosts is a look at our relationship with death. In her quest, Tuckerman has traveled to India, Mexico, Brazil and everywhere that "spirit demons relentlessly snap at our souls." Along the way, Ghosts explores half-memories, night shadows and ancestral myths in a style that encompasses literal, mystical and metaphorical elements. Ghosts is printed in tritone, with 92 black-and-white infrared photographs, fully capturing Tuckerman's surreal and painterly style. Invoking visitations, possessions, curses, incantations and celebrations, these images hauntingly describe the fear of the Grim Reaper as it perpetuates the ritualization of death."--BOOK JACKET.
