Steen Christiansen Photography and Spirit

A historical view of spirit and ghost photography, Harvey's book contextualizes this practice in relation to religion, science and art, thereby pointing out several interesting aspects of spirit photography. The book's aim is descriptive and explanatory and achieves that purpose well, but could have benefited from being more analytical, such as the end reading of Dickens' ghosts in relation to spirit photography.
