Duane Michals inspired images

I was intrigued to make a set of images that tell a narrative, such as how Duane Michals does in order to express his concepts. So as you can see in the two images above I have attempted to recreate the ghostly figures that appear in Michals work. Starting with a normal shot of a crowded area and the people within the frame gradually becoming more and more distorted with every progressing shot, till the point where no features of the subjects are distinguishable at all. This relates to Michals concepts about the unclear nature of death (as the figures in the frame gradually fade to nothing) and doubts people have with identity.
