Occasionally, it happens that when men or animals have been struck by lightning, peculiar impressions have been left upon their bodies, which seem to be the exact impression of some adjacent objects, persons, paintings, etc., in the vicinity of the stroke. The imprint is so accurate, and sometimes the exact colors of the original object are also imprinted in such a way that it makes any common observer believe it to be a photographic replica. Amazing as it may seem, lightning sometimes turns out to be a good photographer!
The book revisits this curious phenomenon of nature after more than a century, especially at a time when science is perplexed to explain the causes of spontaneous appearance of ghostly images occasionally found on windowpanes or the recent miraculous appearance of Virgin Mary's image on the window of a hospital in Malaysia.
The book contains a greater body of information about the curious photographic effects of lightning than any other work on the subject, and it will be a convenient guide to those who wish to investigate further the amazing phenomenon of nature. This is a thorough study of the subject, written in nontechnical language for the layman with a scientific inclination or just curiosity about nature.
This extraordinarily comprehensive, well-documented, biographical dictionary of some 1,500 photographers (and workers engaged in photographically related pursuits) active in western North America before 1865 is enriched by some 250 illustrations, many of them previously unpublished.
When a publisher sends an erotic poet to learn how her favorite nude photographer manages to express erotic feelings so strongly in his work, the idea is that she will collaborate with him, writing poems that capture the erotic in his work itself. Thie situation provides an artistic challenge but also sets the stage for a new erotic experience for them both.
