    My definition, relative to photography, is an image that brings life to an inanimate object.

    Thank you Monty and Kirk.

    One of my favorites also, funny how that is. Chairs and tables have always fascinated me, if only they could talk! Or, perhaps it is better they remain silent, and maintain the mystery.

    From the same story as above. Rather heavy symbolism but that is what makes for aliveness. The table is a kitchen cage for live animals.

    Take a look at Imogen Cunningham's Unmade Bed. The spirit of the person lingers in the room.

    The images on these pages are just stunning. Merg, Miguel and Christopher........oh my!
