JACQUELINE QUINN LAROCCA, The Haunted Traveler
As a ghosthunter I had the opportunity to explore many haunted sites around the world. Ultimately, my ghosthunting lead me into the professional study of photography. Thus, my photography work represents my passion for creating black and white, fine art images of ethereal and haunted/historical places from long ago.
I use my camera as a tool to explore sacred, historical and haunted sites around the globe. I strive to visually communicate the feelings I experienced at these mysterious and spiritual places so others may share my experience. It is very satisfying to me when I feel I have been able to successfully portray the mood of a place through the use of light and shadow.
Most of my photography work is done in black and white because I like how the dark and light tones create a delicate and intriguing canvas for my subjects. My main subjects consist of: historical sites, abandoned places, sacred spaces, and landscapes. I have a passion for infrared photography which is what first enticed me to professionally study photography. Several years ago I saw the work of other infrared photographers and I was awestruck by their images. I wanted to learn how to create similar hauntingly, surreal images.
“The Haunted Traveler” series is a collection of photographs of haunted sites by region around the world. I invite you to explore and enjoy the images I created while seeking spirits from long ago.
