Oyster Shell Ghosts

Rynek Głowny, Kraków III

A view of Kościół Mariacki, (St Mary’s Basilica) and the roof of the Sukiennice or Cloth Hall taken on Christmas day 1992 or 3. I taught English in Poland between 1991 and 1994 and spent a lot of my time walking about the city taking photographs. I took this image while I was wandering about town on my own looking for somewhere I could get some food.

The negative was developed in my bathroom in Krakow in 1992 and printed on a modern oyster shell in 2020. The shell was found on the Isle of Sheppy in Kent. The shell has what appears to be barnacles on the back.
