Experiments with Kirlian Photography

The images included here are part of an ongoing series of explorations of the technique of Kirlian Photography. The Kirlian process involves exposing the photographic subject to a high-voltage, low-current electrical charge. This amplified voltage results in a coronal electric discharge (also called 'bio-field' or 'aura') from the object, which can be documented using large format colour film.
