Review "Judicious, sympathetic, and richly illustrated."--Art Newspaper  (Marina Warner Art Newspaper 20071205) "A rounded picture of the phenomenon. . . . Overall Harvey has done an excellent job in outlining how the three domains fed into the phenomenon of spirit photography, and how its fascination endures."—Tom Ruffles, Fortean Times  (Tom Ruffles Fortean Times ) "This book will fascinate readers with its photographs of spirit contact and spirit presence. If you want to look at ghosts on film, these 80 illustrations will more than satisfy your interest . . .  This is a journey through the surreal, an active and in-depth examination of the numerous myths and cultural history surrounding spirit photography. . . . For the general reader, those interested in the paranormal, or the experienced ghost hunter, this is an ideal book to have in the home library. . . . Literate, well-written, and highly entertaining are the three words to best describe this book by John Harvey. Highly recommended!"– Lee Prosser, Ghostvillage.com  (Lee Prosser GhostVillage.com ) "Harvey captures a modern technological zeitgeist, a literal ghost in teh machine that mixes and merges the mystical, the artistic, and the scientific. At once a primer on optical advances and art history, Photography and Spirit is also about religious devotion and the ways new visual technologies affect teh beliefs and behaviors of religious people."--Journal of the American Academy of Religion (S. Brent Plate Journal of the American Academy of Religion ) About the Author John Harvey is professor in the School of Art at the University of Wales, Aberystwyth.
