These photographs of ‘spirits’ are taken from an album of photographs unearthed in a Lancashire second-hand and antiquarian bookshop by one of the curators of the National Media Museum in the UK. They were taken by a controversial medium called William Hope (1863-1933), ca. 1920.

Le Sapeurs of the Congo belong the Societé des Ambianceurs et des Personnes Elegantes – “one of the world’s most exclusive clubs. Members have their own code of honour, codes of professional conduct and strict notions of morality. It is a world within a world within a city.”
