“Ghosts of the Swamps” – A Collection of Fine Art Photos in Shades of Blacks and Whites

Ghosts exist only in the imagination. They are an illusion of the mind, a bizarre creation of the imagination. Yet every time we go to the wetlands of Caddo Lake in Texas, we have the impression of seeing dozens of ghostly shapes walking on the water where the light appears to be a dog or wolf.

If we take the time to study the Caddo Lake Cypresses when dusk comes, we perceive a vision of supernatural beings slowly arising out of the swamps to silently walk towards us. The Spanish moss growing on the branches of the trees further accentuates this phantasmagorical effect.

The ghosts of the Caddo Lake Marshes evoke the past for us. They are a metaphor for our memories and our fears. Yet we have overcome many obstacles and we sometimes have taken long paths to achieve the ambitious goals we had set for ourselves.

For us, these ghosts also represent our freedom that is so dear to us. It's as if they were trying to get out of a place that imprisons them so that they can embark new adventures in the world. Looking at them, we continue to experience an impression of the pleasure of independence and fresh vigor.

Caddo Lake swamp ghosts resemble our lives. They walk slowly, without any chain or hindrance, but in serenity and calm to discover absolute freedom.
