Yukon, North of Ordinary, “Haunted North” by Manu Keggenhoff
Nice use of double exposure to create a mood. Very appropriate for the subject matter.
The photography is technically and artistically done very well.
My idea for the photo-essay came up one cosy evening at a bonfire, telling ghostly tales over a glass of wine with friends. The Canadian northwest, with its rich gold-rush history, has a lot of spooky stories to tell and I always had a soft spot for the unexplainable tales in our quirky towns. Over time I’ve been collecting these stories and was looking for a way to visualize them. I made a call-out through the entire North to dig a little deeper and hear some lesser known stories and was surprised how many people came forward with their own experiences.
Over the cause of a year I’ve traveled to many original locations throughout the Yukon and northern British Columbia to shoot this collection of ghoststories, trying to capture the mood of a passed era. I used double or long exposures to create a spooky feel. Or took a fogmachine to a nearby graveyard to photograph my friend in a vintage nightgown.
All images were taken at the original location the stories originated from.
Here is a making-of image, in case you’re interested!
