Photographs have already become an integral part of our lives. After all, we carry small, smart and cool cameras in our pockets. And different editors and neural networks can fulfill any of our fantasies in the picture. Well, of course, all sorts of flash mobs, trends and other movements related to photos or videos regularly appear on the Internet. The mid-19th century and early 20th century also had their own jokes. These are creepy spiritual photos! What can I say, I’ve always loved horror stories. And it’s worth noting that these shots still look scary to this day.

Such photographs were the signature card of various mediums, psychics and other charlatans. After all, many people really believed in mysticism. Especially at the beginning of this, so to speak, “hype” trend in photography. Then, of course, people realized that this was just a trick and skillful handling of the camera.
