'A Ghostly Image: Spirit Photographs'

Another Library of Congress guest post, by Kristi Finefield, is just in time for Halloween. She writes, “Claims of capturing a spirit with the camera lens were made as early as the 1850s, when photography was relatively new to the world. At that time, the process of photography was mysterious enough to most people that the idea of a photograph capturing the latent image of a spirit seemed quite possible.

“By the time spirit photographs were being publicized in the 1860s, professional photographers had developed several techniques to portray ghost-like apparitions through composite images, double exposures and the like.” She shares some spirit photographs from the LC’s collection.
