The Photographers' Gallery - What haunts you?

This is an oldie but I still like it. Glad I participated.

The Photographers' Gallery, London collected nearly 4000 images by over 350 photographers in 2007 under the theme of What haunts you?

Here are two of the images I contributed:

Artist Helen Marshall chose one photograph from all those sent in. With it she produced an interactive photo collage composed of 2500 of the images submitted. Click here to view the artwork:

Here you can see my Bark image in the collage:

And here is my dog in the Mist image again in a different spot in the collage:
