KIRLIAN AURA PHOTOGRAPHY
Kirlian Photography, discovered and developed in 1939 by Russian husband and wife Semyon and Valentina Kirlian, is a form of electrophotography used to capture and display the corona discharge of organic matter. Utilized in fields of medicine, science, and parapsychology, this form of “psychic” photography by way of high frequency current may be the means of recording the bioenergetic phenomenon of living organisms. Via a portable Kirlian device and high speed digital photography, filmmaker Jacqueline Castel has showcased these auras at live events internationally.
