Photo of a group at a seance, c 1920 by William Hope, “spirit photographer” The information accompanying the spirit album states that the table is levitating - in reality the image of a ghostly arm has been superimposed over the table. Hope’s “Spirit Photography” work gained momentum after WWI, when many people were desperate to find evidence of loved ones living beyond the grave. His techniques used double and triple exposures to render the appearance of ghostly apparitions.
In 1946, a woman named Mrs. Andrews took this picture of her deceased daughter's gravestone in Queensland, Australia. Her daughter had been just 17 when she'd died the previous year. When the film was developed, Mrs. Andrews was shocked to see the image of an infant girl looking directly into her camera. #strange #weird #bizarre #ghost #paranormal
