About the event
Real or not, ghosts and their locations are rich fuel for the writer, artist, musician. In this wonderful book, Wise and Bayer have bought together a collection of London ghosts in photographs with their accompanying stories. These are the visions and the voices they heard. The artist and photographer was inspired by the reports of London ghosts and has depicted them here as they appeared in her imagination.
The stories, repeated over time at specific places, are now embedded in the fabric of each place. An actual source for many of these ghost sightings, or a reliable known witness, is hard to track down. They seem to vanish like mist in the sunlight when one delves closer.
The stories presented in this book are thrilling. The authors have tried, with some presented in this book, to imagine more of their story, by tuning in to them at their haunting grounds. In this way they have treated them as real phenomena and real souls, with a story to tell, and who can be communicated with.
After listening to this engaging talk, we hope that you will visit these places, tarry a while, offer them kindness, and see what they reveal to you. And remember, it is not the dead you have to fear in this world, but the living!
