Magical Camera – Twilight Zone

00:00 /

In this episode, I introduce another segment that I’ll be adding to in future episodes: the Magical Camera trope in fiction. I’m starting it off with the 1960 Twilight Zone episode “A Most Unusual Camera.” Watch it yourself on Amazon, or just check out this clip on YouTube to get a sense for what a jerk Chester is.

Ambient Light is hosted by Sabrina Hughes, photo historian and mystic who is interested in the art and magic of our family photographs. 

Support the podcast and other photo-based art projects on Patreon for as little as $1/month. Last month, I posted an essay about early mystical photography tropes in fiction. If you like this episode and this segment, you’ll probably like this short read.
