fairy photos from 1917


Here is a famous 1917 Coddingley Fairie photo — a faked image of a Fairie taken by some young girls who worked in a photo lab. They placed cut-out illustrations in a woodland landscape, they never claimed these to be true photos of fairies. Others who saw the photos did, giving testimony to their authentic nature. Most famously, Scottish author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, the creator of Sherlock Holmes testified that the photos were obviously NOT fakes and that here was proof that fairies were real. All you need to do is BELIEVE.

It has been a while, many months, since I last visited your blog.

I was afraid to find out that it would be left like a deserted ghost town, but I am happy to see that it is alive and well.

Please go on!

Best Regards

PS Yes, it is enough to believe. And why not? The so-called reality is just sedimented consensual belief, why then limiting the horizon?

I do believe in fairies, and, as a matter of fact, I dined with one two months ago in Chelsea, NYC.
