There Are So Many Ghosts at My Spot

Isolation always gave people the opportunity to deal with their ghosts, just as it did during the last quarantine. Someone kept running away from them, someone finally managed to face them. Someone else chose to teleport them directly into his room, so that in just a couple of minutes the empty and cold space fabulously transformed into something tangible.

Photographer Karman Verdi, from Moscow, Russia, used online shooting to tell a story about people from different parts of the world who need communication and human contact, now more than ever. He took screenshots of their models and projected them onto the surfaces of his house. The result is There are so many ghosts at my spot, a project about self-isolation and the human need for everyday intimacy.

But this spirit seems to pervade every shot of Karman. His home atmospheres tell a story of nostalgic loneliness, a desire to rediscover at all costs a time when everything was certainly more serene, carefree and true. Moments of childhood and relationships, of play and sensuality. Moments of love.

“It’s not just about deriving a projection. Communicating, interacting without embellishment, telling a full genuine story, that’s what I’m talking about,” Karman said.
