Conjuring the Past (photographic and video evidence!)
The hobby/obsession allows me to see things I never would have expected to see. Old films, buried stories, books with odd titles, or things left inside them. The search for the forgotten and the peculiar just gets better and better. This image above is only a part of what's out there - or, in there.
This is an interior doorway to a beautiful old and closed up home, that will be open for an estate sale this weekend on France St, in Norwalk, CT. I took this picture because of the unique design. Moving upstairs I found a negative that when held up to the light struck me for its similarity.
I decided to layer both and see how well the 2 lined up, and the first image above is the result. I used the image to start off a short documentary about the home. Thanks to New England Estate Sales, Brian and Bill for giving me the green light to join them on their first look through this 120 year old home.
