Spirit Photographs


William Hope was a photographer/medium (who was eventually exposed as a fraud) in the early 20th century.

Oh Oh Oh I love these. Wouldn't it be crazy to be live in the early 1900's and be introduced to photography for the first time and have this guy saying he can photograph spirits!? It would be hard NOT to believe him.

so intriguing! i just read the wikipedia entry about this guy. i kinda love that sir arthur conan doyle refused to believe that hope was a fraud. he even wrote a book trying to clear his name.

i heart history.
