Photographs and film footage
recorded during a paranormal event at Northumberland's Kielder Castle. It centres on the voices of the
mediums evoking the spirits, who asked questions such as “Are you a
child?", "Do you mind us being here?" or "...is Mary
The four mediums took it in
turn to summon, encourage and goad spirits believed to be
present, into moving a glass on a table, tripping an alarm, or touching
the back of someone's neck to 'prove' they were there.
This event took place at
night and in near darkness. The only light was either torchlight, or the
flashguns of equipment used by both mediums and participants to record or
capture what was beyond view.
Prints will be made from film
grabs taken when a flashgun went off sporadically during a séance resulted in
some fascinating images along with 'paranormal' photographs of the displays at
Kielder Castle, creating orbs and tricks of the light.
