Woman and the spirit of her deceased sister


One of a collection of ‘spirit’ photographs taken by the medium William Hope.

He produced such photos for bereaved individuals, desperate to contact their loved ones. His services were especially in demand by those who had lost relatives in World War One.

In the 1920’s he was accused of faking such photos by superimposing other images upon the original.

I don’t know what this sad collection of photos tells us about parapsychology -beyond warning about a misplaced faith in technology and a desperate desire for something to be ‘out there’…….
