Nostalgia for the past is lingering this week, a hangover from all those lovely memories we posted last week.
The following image are negatives, I had to tape them to a window in order to photograph them…
The aura, the living light that surrounds each living thing on the planet.
Jaye and I had these photographs taken many moons ago,
too many to count, meaning to have them printed.
The other night they came to mind.
Of course, I asked Jaye to do something with them, and she did .
I cannot remember the name of the man we met at a Spiritualist Fair.
He invited us to his home where he took these images of our hands.
I think they should see the light of day after all this time…
“Kirlian photography refers to a form of contact print photography, theoretically associated with high-voltage. It is named after Semyon Kirlian, who in 1939 accidentally discovered that if an object on a photographic plate is subjected to a strong electric field, an image is created on the plate.
In controversial metaphysical contexts, Kirlian photography, Kirlian energy, and so on, are sometimes referred to as just ‘Kirlian’. Kirlian made controversial claims that his method showed proof of supernatural auras, said to resemble a rough outline of the object like a colorful halo.
Kirlian proposed and promoted the idea that the resulting images of living objects were a physical proof of the life force or aura which allegedly surrounds all living beings. This claim was said to be supported by experiments by the Kirlians that involved cutting part of a leaf off – the Kirlian images of such leaves, it was said, still showed the leaves as whole, as though the cutting had never happened.”
