Kayakoy is an abandoned Greek Village or what the locals call a "Ghost Town" not far from Oludeniz, Turkey. In a sense this series is an escape for me, having experienced several months of unemployment and the impending death of family members. On many days I felt like a ghost myself (there are some "self portraits included here"). I used my trusted Nikon D70 with an infrared filter which allowed enough blur in broad daylight to track the ghosts, apparitions and what was hiding in the shadows. I feel it gives a true sense of the abandonment, post-war decay and rubble that our lives sometimes reflect.
