“I PUT A SPELL ON YOU”…. AN ABSOLUTELY FRIGHTENING GUY AND A HYPNOTIZED WOMAN IN CEDAR FALLS, IOWA

This cabinet card is a portrait of a man, reminiscent of Svengali, and a woman who appears as if she is under an evil hypnotic trance. This photograph is surreal. The lighting makes the man look as if his head is aglow  and the woman being positioned close behind the man is quite unusual. The photographer is Sorensen who operated a studio in Cedar Falls, Iowa in 1880 and then again in 1895 through 1896.
