Aura photography is the latest trend for the selfie generation
A fresh wave of occultist photographers a reoccupying New York, with specially pioneered cameras to capture auras on film.
Hidden in Chinatown is a para normal vendor who supplies instant prints of human energy fields in a car too ni sh ly mysterious business model. Across town ina swankier shop front is Radiant Human, who setup shop at the Red Bull studios in Chelsea. Radiant Human is a travelling peddler of spiritual Polaroids (right ), snap ping a person’ s“vibes” and then interpreting said vibes.
This has proved popular with the soul-searching community of Instagram users. Both clair voyant vendors translate the multi coloured glow around the pictured customer to a concise synopsis of past, present and future, treating the supposed layers of their aura like a kind of spiritual onion for humans. They make great profilers and they’ re right on point with the cosmic chic trend, which has chief ly manifested in galaxyprint leggings and endless images of cats in space.
Photography of the human electromagnetic field was pioneered in the 1930s by a Russian electric ian who toyed around with metal electrodes and “at the price of a severe burn” captured a strange photo of an energy discharge around his hand. He plugged his efforts as aura photography and was regarded with reverence and/ or scepticism for the rest of hisd ays.
Today’ s images use the same bocke ty technology and preach sentiments such as :“We foster the ephemeral and make the meta physical tangible ”, which would make a more appropriate company line for Buck fast. Owing to the inclusion of pretty colours, and by encouraging narcissistic personality disorder, expect aura photography to continue to grow as an art form.
