Spirit Photography with Nathan Lewis

Photographer Nathan Lewis is fascinated by “spirit photography,” an art form developed by late 19th-century artists and hucksters that used the new technology of photography to capture images of the paranormal world—or so they claimed. In the last decade, Lewis started hanging out with the Twin Cities Paranormal Society, resulting in the series Conversations in the Dark, which documents and interprets everyday people’s claims of contact with spirits, poltergeists, and all things supernatural.

Lewis will discuss his interest in historical spirit photography, describe his experiences with the Paranormal Society, and meditate on the intersection of technology and human feelings of loss, horror, and discovery.
