American Ghost

There are many ghost towns or abandoned communities in the United States. Thousands of communities became railroad ghost towns when a rail line failed to materialize. Residents are compelled to leave in search of more productive areas when the resources that had created an employment boom in these towns were eventually consumed. Some unincorporated towns become ghost towns due to flooding caused by dam projects that created man–made lakes. This project is a journey of a ghost to those places where people do not live anymore. It wonders around in search of the past days and reflecting surroundings.
