The article focuses on "The Perfect Medium: Photography and the Occult," an exhibition of spirit photography at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. Some of the works featured in the exhibit include pocket-sized gilted framed formal portraits and bigger and bolder images from the early decades of the 20th century. The event showed that photography can indeed serve as an ideal form for cathing ghosts and spirits.
