Documentation of spiritualism is pointless in my opinion. The idea of spiritualism makes no sense nor does it interest me. Do I believe that the majority of these pictures are altered? Yes, I do. As a society of living human beings, the border of trying to access a sort of realm of the afterlife should not be crossed. If we were meant to interact with spirits, I believe that these interactions would be hearable and visible to all with ease. People are attracted by trends and that is my only explanation of why spiritualism has its community. Nothing about any of the photos Shannon Taggart has taken represents anything to me, not to discredit her as a photographer. I do believe that there are forces in this world that humans may encounter, however I think that a hype has been built around this practice that only attracts gullible people. So to answer the question of “Do I find such documentation valuable”, no I don’t.
