We’re having a virtual Halloween costume parade today in honor of the canceled/postponed and sorely missed Village Halloween Parade slated for this evening. Submit your photos to firstname.lastname@example.org with identifying information + a description of your costume if it’s …. less clear.
Happy Halloween! Celebrate by joining WNYC’s virtual Halloween costume parade. Or at least, by checking out the pictures.
“It is a bit like painting with history,” Jo Hedwig Teeuwisse says of her project “Ghosts of History.”
She got the idea a few years ago when she found some old negatives at a flea market in Amsterdam, where she lives. “I was very curious about these mysterious photos and wanted to find out who took them and where. So I started to walk around Amsterdam and made photos in the same spot where the old photos were made and combined them on the computer.”
