there in spirit

The late part of the 19th century and into the beginning of the 20th saw the fervent, some would say faddish, rise of Spiritualism. Out of that movement, some truly wonderful photography was born, with a definite artistry, and a type of mystery and off-kilter sensibility that modern "spiritual" images often lack.

These images and more can be found in the book "The Perfect Medium: Photography and the Occult", which can be previewed here.
