Camera Clues: A Handbook for Photographic Investigation
University Press of Kentucky, 1994 - 234 pages
Whoever said photographs don't lie must never have heard the old saying among photographers, "Every photo is a work of fiction." Photographic mysteries are everywhere. This book, the fist of its kind, will help solve many of those mysteries.
Nationally known historical investigator Joe Nickell tells us how to identify and date old photos and how to distinguish originals from copies and fakes. He goes on to address forensic applications, "surreptitious" photography, and legal concerns. Particularly intriguing is his discussion of camera tricks, darkroom deceptions, retouching techniques, computer technology, and trickery detection.
Nickell concludes with an exciting look at "paranormal" photography: alleged photographs of ghosts, UFOs, and legendary creatures; "miracle" pictures; and psychokinetic (ESP-produced) photos.
Authoritative, with easy-to-read technical discussions, this handbook will serve investigators of all types - detectives, attorneys, historians, geneologists, reporters, photo archivists, paranormal researchers, and others.
