Spirit Photography – Fotografia spiritica tra ‘800 e ‘900

luciano lapadula moda spiritismo photo spirit spiritism eusapia palladino blog fashion magazine culture creepy macabre grotesque

È la fine del XIX secolo, il mondo pare cambiare troppo vorticosamente. Il metallo svetta dal cemento delle metropoli e promette di toccare il cielo. Nuove generazioni si scontrano con quelle vecchie, i cabaret sono affollati da “cocotte”, i bar da artisti che annegano nell’assenzio insieme alle prostitute. La domenica si indossa l’abito buono, chi può permetterselo sfoggia quello bianco. Cambia il modo di ricordare, la fotografia sostituisce le tele dei pittori, e ci descrive di quella strana moda che imperversò durante l’epoca vittoriana giungendo ai primi decenni del nuovo secolo: lo spiritismo. Dalla Russia degli Zar a  Villa Santa Barbara di Cefalù personaggi carismatici, mistici, visionari muovono folle di adepti assetati di conoscere i segreti della vita e della morte. Il clima di trasformazione sociale, i nuovi mostruosi mondi generati dal capitalismo, generano ansia, terrore, malattia. Tubercolosi e sifilide sono solo due tra i tanti virus che decimano impietosi uomini e donne, i dagherrotipi cercano di fermare inutilmente quelle esistenze, ma sono solo fotografie. Allora ci si riunisce in casa, nel salotto, si chiudono le pesanti tende in broccato e intorno a un tavolo solitamente con tre gambe, le mani dei presenti si stringono in una catena, e il medium invoca una presenza. Di seguito una selezione di immagini d’epoca che testimonia la pratica dello spiritismo tra la fine del 1800 e l’inizio del 1900. Come tutte le tendenze, numerosi fiorirono i gabinetti fotografici esperti nel ritrarre quelle immagini che presero il nome di “fotografie spiritiche”.  Alcune tra queste sono frutto di un abile e antesignana pratica di fotoritocco, i cui effetti speciali hanno contribuito ad alimentare come vento sul fuoco le fiamme della speranza, il morbo della conoscenza, consumando le struggenti notti di quel tempo perduto.

It’s the end of the Nineteenth century, the world seems to change too vortically. Metal stands out from the cemented streets of the metropolises and promises to touch the sky. New generations clash with old ones, cabarets are crowded with “cocottes”, bars by artists drowning in absinthe along with prostitutes. On Sundays people wear the “good dress”, a white one if wealthy. The way to remember changes, photography replaces the paintings, and describes that strange fashion that raged during the Victorian Age reaching the first decades of the new century: spiritualism. From Tsars’ Russia to Villa Santa Barbara in Cefalù, charismatic, mystical and visionary characters move crowds of adepts eager for knowing the secrets of life and death. The mood of general social transformation, the new monstrous worlds created by capitalism, generate anxiety, terror, disease. Tuberculosis and syphilis are just two of the many viruses that merciless decimate men and women, daguerreotypes try to uselessly stop those existences, but they are only photographs. Hence people meet at home, in the living room, they close the heavy brocade curtains and around a table with three legs the hands of those present are clutched in a chain, and the medium invokes the presence. Below you can find a selection of antique images proving the practice of spiritualism between the late 1800s and early 1900s. Like all the trends, there bloomed numerous photographic cabinets, specialized in portraying those images that took the name of “spiritual photographs”. Some of those images are the result of a skilled and precursor practice of photo editing, which special effects have helped to fuel the flames of hope, the morbidness of knowledge like the wind on the fire, consuming the poignant nights of that lost time.

Katie King fu il nome di uno tra i più famosi – presunti – fantasmi che sul finire dell’Ottocento presero forma grazie alla medium Florence Cook, fu così che gli spiritisti attribuirono lo stesso nome alla materializzazione spiritica di quegli anni.

Katie King was a popular ghost evocated by Florence Cook, and was already the name given by Spiritualists in the 1870s to what they believed to be a materialized spirit. The question of whether the spirit was real or a fraud was a notable public controversy of the mid-1870s.

Eusapia Palladino, nata nel 1854 a Minervino Murge, in provincia di Bari: Fu una tra le medium più conosciute e accreditate di tutti i tempi. L’iniziazione allo spiritismo avvenne quando, lavorando come cameriera presso una benestante famiglia, iniziò a prendere parte alle sedute  organizzate nella lussuosa dimora. Fu durante quelle sedute che si verificarono fenomeni mai accaduti prima, che furono attribuiti alla presenza della giovane. Nella sua carriera di occultista ebbe fama mondiale affascinando aristocratici e scienziati, tra i quali Cesare Lombroso e persino Pierre e Marie Curie.

Eusapia Palladino, born in 1854 in Minervino Murge, near Bari: she was one of the best known and accredited mediums of all time. The initiation into spiritism came when, working as a waitress with a rich family, she began to take part in the sessions inside the luxurious home. It was during those sessions that phenomena never happened before were ascribed to the presence of the young woman. In her career as an occultist she gained world fame by captivating aristocrats and scientists, including Cesare Lombroso and even Pierre and Marie Curie.

Spesso durante le sedute medianiche si materializzava, o si supponeva si materializzasse, una sostanza semi liquida che fuoriusciva dagli orifizi del medium, a cui lo scienziato Charles Richet dette il nome di ectoplasma. Questo poteva assumere svariate forme, riconducibili all’esistenza del trapassato.

Often during the seance sessions, a semi-liquid substance materialized, or was supposed to materialize, it came out of the medium’s orifices, to which the scientist Charles Richet gave the name of ectoplasm. It could take many forms, attributable to the existence of the person who passed away.

According to spiritualists, it was a substance that would be externalized by the bodily orifices of the medium during a séance.
