JR Pepper will discuss the height of spirit photography as well the influential Spiritualism movement and explore the methods of creating "ghosts" from back in the day.

If a photographer told you he could take a picture of your deceased loved one, would you believe him?

Back in the 1860’s, many people did. Hundreds of people believed that photographers like William Mumler were capable of taking photographs of ghosts, proving that there was a means to communicate with the spirit world. Spirit photography had many critics as well including the infamous P.T. Barnum -- who even spoke at a trial to prove that it was a huge fraud -- but still people believed in Mumler’s "ghosts."

We’ll discuss the height of spirit photography as well the influential Spiritualism movement and explore the methods of creating "ghosts" from back in the day.
