Ghosts In The Sunlight are photos that were made from a car looking for a patch of dirt on the side of the road to park on. I pick up my camera wrapped in an old t-shirt and look for the thing I thought I saw in the car. Usually it’s an emptiness, a potential for something new or imagined to happen in that space.

I majored in literature at University at Buffalo. So I wasn’t an art major in college, and I haven’t always looked at things in pictures, but once I started to I realized I was looking for them all along, in old movies, in television, on the side of the highway looking up at the power lines. Photography gave me a way to compose the world into something more manageable.

About Nick Torsell: Nick Torsell was born in 1989 and started taking photos a few years ago. Though Nick has exhibited previously, this will be his first solo gallery show in Buffalo, NY. His sense of reality was deeply shaken by the 2016 Cubs winning the World Series for the first time since 1908. Wait ’til he gets his money right. Instagram: nftorsell
