We often associate the supernatural, such as spirits, ghosts and hauntings, with a sense of fear. But what is perhaps just as frightening, or even more, is the thought that there may be nothing more out there than what we experience and perceive as the present or reality.
Bradford has been inspired by spiritualism and the need to escape from reality and believe in a spirit world and mythology that at first glance may seem to belong to the past, but which continues in our own time to influence how we think. "As My Eyes Adjust" is just as much about lack of faith as it is about faith itself. The supernatural gasps for breath when magic is dissipated by the bright light of science.
