Street Haunting

Series of prints (2010)
12 prints, 42×29.7 cm
Framed in pairs 50×70 cm

The starting point for this work is a series of found photographs of a young woman and Virginia Woolf’s essay Street Haunting: A London Adventure (1927). In the essay, Woolf invents stories about the lives of the people she passes while walking across town. The work presents the found photographs alongside diverse (and contradictory) readings from five psychics who speculate about the life and persona of the young woman in the photographs, based on a set of questions commonly used for character development in scriptwriting.
