Playing Pretend

Superstition for everyone!
1. Wychbury Obelisk, 2. Edward Wyllie – Spirit Photographer c.1903, 3. seance board–cu, 4. Victorian Fancy Dress – Witches & Fairies at Ye Magic Well 2

The second and last photos are pretty self explanatory. The first is a message scrawled on the Wychbury Obelisk in a town in England after the skeleton of a woman was found stuffed inside of a very old witchhazel tree during WWII.

The third image is of spirit photography. It’s a bit of collage and collaboration created to make people think their dead relatives were visiting them and hovering around them and only the camera could capture their presence. This was a considered proof of the afterlife and a part of the spiritualist movement.
