Ghost is a self-taught artist based in New York City. His first experience with photography took place in 2001 in Savannah, Georgia. He continued using photography as a supporting tool to his commercial graphic design practice for the next ten years. Ghost moved to New York City in 2010, and in 2019 he decided to redirect his career from commercial to artistic photography.
The observation of human existence in the phenomenal world vs. human being-ness in the realm of mythical imagination (the later sustained by social constructs and stories such as truth and delusion, life and death, duality and oneness, sacredness and profanity, the world of the absolute and the world of the relative) greatly inform the direction of his artistic output. Ghost has been studying and practicing Zen Buddhism since 2011 in the lineages of Vietnamese Zen master, Venerable Dr. Thich Thien-An, and Korean Zen master, Seung Sahn Dae Jong Sa.
