Example text

57 Mnookin locates three strands of testimony and argumentation at the trial dealing with the status of photographs as evidence. She classifies the first strand as “supernatural realism,” which she associates with those defense witnesses who testified that these images provided important evidence for the existence of spirits. In other words, these Spiritualists believed that such images bore an indexical relationship with the supernatural and that they were the product of spiritual intervention. ”58 They, too, argued that these images served as evidence but of just the opposite of spiritual intervention; they argued that Mumler’s images were fraudulent and illusionist, providing them with evidence to illustrate the mechanical tricks and darkroom manipulations that he employed.

61 The indeterminate result of the Mumler trial would then be to think about photographic meaning as an exercise of competing wills to truth and as an effect of rhetorical framing. ”62 Photographic Amusements: Br e w s t e r ’ s Gh o s t a n d Co m b i n a t i o n P r i n t i n g In 1856, the Scottish physicist Sir David Brewster published The Stereoscope: Its History, Theory, and Construction. Known as one of the key technological innovators of his era for the invention of the kaleidoscope as well as for his innovation in the development of lenses for the stereoscope (the binocular-attuned instrument designed to give the illusion of a three-dimensional viewing experience), Brewster understood how this new photo–philosophical toy would lend itself to funny business.

And why not? ”47 Yet, one also notes that the mocking attempt of this accredited professional journal to demystify Mumler has been cast as a phantasmic story and one that utilizes a spiritual and Spiritualist imperative (“pray”). In other words, the photographic journal (and its “reasons”) cannot wipe the slate clean of such uncanny and peculiar stories on account of the constitutive haunting of the photographic medium by ghosts and phantoms.
