'Ghosts,' Sam Taylor-Wood's 2008 photographic exploration of the Yorkshire Moors, was inspired by Emily Bronte's classic Victorian novel 'Wuthering Heights,' whose famously atmospheric descriptions of the bleak, wild landscape almost turn that locale into the novel's third major character. n the ten images from the series to be shown at the Brooklyn Museum, Taylor-Wood captures the stark and haunting character of the windswept moors and gray skies surrounding Top Withens, a ruined farmhouse and the alleged setting of 'Wuthering Heights.' Drawing inspiration from the Bronte sisters' gothic romantic fiction, the artist followed the footpath from the stone parsonage where the Brontes lived and died up across the moors to Top Withens.
