Always on the lookout for the next weirdest thing to add to her obituary, Kjersti (Instagram: @kjee83) goes through life with her heart on her sleeve, her head in the clouds, and her spirit guides on her shoulders. Her photo series “Forgotten but not Gone” and accompanying book “Disembodied Places” pays respect to some of the abandoned houses dotting the rural Wisconsin landscape and encourages the viewer to look at life (and death) from a different angle. Her essays and photos have appeared in The Feminine Macabre: A Woman’s Journal of All Things Strange and Unusual and The Quarterly Press: Myths, Fables, and Folklore. Kjersti enjoys having a foot in both worlds and advocates for the continued research of the paranormal and leaving the world a little weirder than she found it.
