About the Artist: Shani Ghosh
Shani Ghosh is a Philadelphia based photographer who studied at The University of the Arts. Since graduating in 2007 she has relocated to the nearby Philadelphia suburb of Huntingdon Valley, where she grew up. She is the proud mother of two boys.
This series of photographs was taken between 2005 and 2007 in Shani’s former residence in Huntingdon Valley. The house, a large historic converted barn, was said to be where one of our Presidents kept his horses during the period of the underground railroad. The entire series was shot on medium format film, then converted digitally to canvas and stretched.
The house always felt haunted and ominous to Shani, and she used this series to document that feeling, along with the personal pain of losing her mother in the house. The photographs are meant to depict layers of pain and the haunting spirits that were felt while living in the large, old converted dwelling.
Shani is hoping to expand more on this piece in the future and is currently doing photography on the side of her current job.
