Winnipeg’s Forgotten History: Ghost Photography

Loading map...

Join Dalnavert and the University of Manitoba Press as we celebrate The Art of Ectoplasm: Encounters with Winnipeg’s Ghost Photographs with Winnipeg’s Forgotten History: Ghost Photography. Let Dr. Serena Keshavjee, the book’s editor, amaze you with the story of Winnipeggers, T.G. Hamilton and Lillian Hamilton and their investigations into photographing human consciousness after death. Explore the historical significance of séances and the surprising impact the Hamilton’s photo collection had on art and film.

Doors open at 6:30. The talk begins at 7:00. Arrive early to purchase a copy of the book, look around the first floor of the historic house, and have a drink at our after-dark bar.
