The Perfect Medium: Photography and the Occult

9780300111361

Ghosts, spirit séances, levitation, auras, ectoplasm… In the early days of photography, many believed and hoped that the camera would prove more efficient than the human eye in capturing the unseen. This book covers a fascinating movement in photography, bringing together over 250 photographs culled from public and private archives throughout Europe and North America, from the Victorian era to the 1960s. The Perfect Medium studies these rare and remarkable photographs through cultural, historical, and artistic lenses. More than mere curiosities, the images on film are important records of the cultural forces and technical methods that brought about their production.
This is a highly recommended book and great addition to you’re photography book collection, even if it is a little pricey.
