Untitled (The Saeki House with Dark Spot)
Pictured: Kayako Saeki
— Indecisive Moments
The house featured in this image, taken by Eason in 2006, is the location where a man murdered his wife and son. The murdered woman’s ghost haunts the house and her curse spreads not only to those who visit the house, but also to those who fauxtograph it.
A mysterious dark spot began to appear on the surface of the print as the latent image developed in the darkroom, almost as if the fauxtograph were being overdeveloped. However, the dark spot was not the result of improper development, rather it was the dead woman’s ghost emerging from the surface of the image. Untitled (The Saeki House with Dark Spot) is the final fauxtograph taken by Eason before his untimely death.
