My photographs are about a woman who lived over a century ago based upon the remnants she left behind in a small, dilapidated leather trunk abandoned for garbage on a New York City Street. The name of my ghost is Sylvia DeWolf Ostrander (1841-1925). Through the medium of photography I create a No When. This is not a fantasy world, but a very real place where Sylvia and I exist together and time ceases to matter. I imagine backwards, an apparition in her bygone era. She visits me in the present through my dreams. I haunt the places she has been, read her correspondence, wear her clothing, and contemplate her once lived life in order to become Sylvia.The photographs on the site are a small sample from a much larger body of work.
