In 1923, Harry Houdini And Arthur Conan Doyle Feuded Over Spirit Photography And Went On Rivaling Lecture Tours To Drive Home Their Beliefs About The Spiritualism Movement

“The whole concept was so new. Why couldn’t [photography] show psychic energies that are otherwise invisible to the naked eye? Think about X-rays, which were also new. You could see a person’s bones without cutting into them. So, why not spirit photography?” said Colleary.

So, Arthur continued working to promote spirit photography while Harry remained committed to debunking the practice. And even after their death, their opposing lecture tours continued to shape the public’s perception of spirit photography and the Spiritualism movement as a whole.
