These photographs were taken on a macro lens I attached to a projector playing anonymous old 8mm home movies, purchased mostly at the flea market. The films are from the 1940s-1970s. Sproket holes on old film can wear out over time causing them to flutter in the projector. Distortions and interesting blur results when captured as a photograph.  The unknown subjects remain as obsured ghosts moving in between frames.
