One dimension of the history of photography that is becoming increasingly important concerns photography's ability to see the invisible. A founding episode in this hypothesis dates back to the end of the 19th century, that of spiritualist photography. In recent years, a number of artists have returned to this practice, as if to reaffirm strong links with the spiritual world, and maintain that photography not only serves to bear witness to material reality, but is also capable of depicting the invisible. A selection of works by Quebec artists Serge Clément, Sorel Cohen, Denis Farley, Marie-Jeanne Musiol, Richard-Max Tremblay and Éliane Excoffier, among others, demonstrate that photography continues to show us ghosts.
