"The Hungry Ghost" Series by Photographer Traer Scott
"The Hungry Ghost is a series of fantastical narrative portraits which explore myths, legends and fabled beings which humanity has created throughout centuries to help explain their world. Creation, death, ritual, anthropomorphism and the spirit world are common themes in mythological and religious allegory. “The Hungry Ghost” after which the series is named, refers to a metaphorical character that inhabits a type of purgatory in Tibetan Buddhism. The ghost is said to have a bloated stomach and a neck too thin to pass food, resulting in constant hunger and desire." From Photographer Traer Scott
