Corinne May Botz: Haunted Houses


D sweet Since the stories are mainly first hand stories they do not have the histori This book was created for me Large format long exposure photos detailing interiors and exteriors of buildings with ghost stories and the stories that go with them told first person by the witnesses It s awesome I love this stuff The pictures are beautiful haunting and thought provoking The Short stories are narrated by people who livelived or work in the haunted places Eighty places are featured including Edgar Allan Poe s house in Balti I did find one thing to be frustrating At the beginning of each short story is a index of pictures you are about to see There is no page numbers next to the descriptions and location Making it hard to correspond pictures with descriptions and locations. Riors both physical and psychological   This book includes than eighty haunted buildings from the legendary to the ordinary including Edgar Allan Poe’s house in Balti a New Jersey tavern and a Massachusetts farmhouse a log cabin in Kentucky and a number of private residences The text includes ghost stories told to the author by those who lived through the moving rugs creaking floors apparitions disappearing and reappearing objects cries in the night mysteriously burning candles and other unexplained occurrences.

Photos They are even compelling and evocative They give you that just around the corner feeling the feeling of a presence And the ghost stories collected are even better I just wish that the house photos would have been put in order I found this title in a catalog After reading the book I have mixed feelings about it As an author of ghost stories I love reading stories by other authors I find so many interesting stories and histories through these booksI was somewhat confused by the book The book is almost a coffee table book for haunted houses The author has numerous photographs of haunted locations The photographs are artistic not the typical pictures featured in ghost booksThe first hand accounts of hauntings are scattered through out the book The stories are short an. A vague understanding that my vision was private so I never told my family what I saw”   So began Corinne May Botz’s fascination with the invisible a phenomenon that has profoundly influenced her approach to photography in style and subject matter For than ten years she searched for ghost stories in buildings across the United States She ventured into these haunted places with both camera and tape recorder in hand; her photographs accompanied by first person narratives reveal a rare glimpse into American inte.

LOVED this The pictures were exceptionally well done and I loved how the author recorded ghost stories from the actual tenants employees etc of these haunted places In this book about Haunted houses across the author travels and interviews people who have seen ghosts I really enjoyed the stories behind the tales however the photography was a little bit odd I didnt really get why there were random pictures of rooms Even though they may have been haunted most of them didn t seem particualrly scary or menacing A good collection of house and interior photos form across the US Also some ghost stories if you re into that sort of thing Very interesting photos but not the ind of in depth ghost stories I was looking for for a spooky Oct read Firstly the photos are not ghost. “When I was between the ages of five and eight my sister and I slept in a large attic bedroom At nightfall the room was filled with gypsies who glided around in clusters They wore colorful thin flowing dresses and rummaged greedily through my drawers and books as if they would steal everything I lay in bed as stiff as a board trying to will myself invisible praying they would not notice me looking Daylight obliterated the gypsies rendering them as thoroughly insubstantial as they had been real in the dark I had.
