1900s, Ghastly And Ghostly With Herve Lewandowski

RMN has a collection of photography by Hervé Lewandowski entitled Album de photographies spirites : spectre et voiles. The black-and-white and sepia images from the 1900s are subtly haunting and feature multiple exposures of people in Victorian-era garb. If you’ll look closely, you’ll see many of the same recycled images in various degrees of focus. Prepare to be blown away by how gorgeous and surprisingly relevant each of these photographs are now; you can see all of the 101 images here, where you can also buy them!
