Photographer Simon Marsden's fascination with the supernatural began in childhood as he played hide and seek in the ancient attic of his family's house, ever vigilant for the appearance of the 'family ghost'. It wasn't until later that he discovered the craft of photography and developed an enduring fascination with the enigma of 'reality' that timing and lighting conjure up. His startlingly atmospheric black and white images reveal a hidden world and the ghostly, beguiling and often chilling images transport the reader to a different realm, a haunted realm, where what we believe to be reality may not be quite all it seems...The Haunted Realm is a collection of outstanding photographs of eerie and fascinating places throughout England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland. Houses and mansions, castles and abbeys - Simon has left no stone unturned in his quest to capture the ghostly nature of these strange places on film. Accompanying the photographs is his intriguing text which describes the apparitions or spirit manifestations that have been reported at each particular site and the strange and often macabre real-life events that are believed to have caused the hauntings.
