Paris is considered as the cradle of photography because it is there that photographic technology first emerged in 1839. From the very beginning, the city lent itself very easily to ambitious photographic projects and thanks to its artists, it proved to be the ideal breeding ground for a new medium, which was photography.

The Hamburg exhibition aims to show how artists engaged in photography saw, experienced, and captured Paris with their cameras. It covers at once, the full spectrum of photographers including those with a documentary interest as well as those who instilled personal feelings into their work.

    Lantern Slides From the 'Psychic Photography From a New Angle' Series

    Mysterious apparitions and other inexplicable phenomena on film, or generally speaking, for that matter, are as highly debated topics today as they were many decades ago. In 1934, a certain Mr. C.P. MacCarthy of 15 Wilkinson Street, Sheffield held a lecture at 76 Clarkehouse Road located in the same city to "demonstrate under test conditions Fake Psychic Photography" before an invited committee. MacCarthy's demonstration was accompanied by a series of photographs titled "Psychic Photography From a New Angle."
