FORT: Ghosts was funded by the grant of the Hessische Kulturstiftung.

FORT collected vintage dollhouses and photographed the various empty rooms for the artists’ book Ghosts. Each house shows the hand of an individual owner and can be read as a portrayal of the erstwhile residents and their ideas on how to live. But the photographs also capture later alterations such as a child’s efforts to embellish or modernize the objects. Abandoned and desolate yet haunted by the ghosts of the childhoods of different generations and social classes, the dollhouses awaken to a peculiar second life.
