STEALING THE LIFE OF THE DEAD

Does photographing a person steal their soul? In certain tribal communities, this is a sincerely held belief; indeed, many Native Americans have long believed that photographs capture the souls of the living and imprison them within the photographic image. If taking a photograph of the living can steal souls, what happens if you photograph something dead or inanimate? Do the dead or non-living have souls? If so, can the souls of the dead be stolen by photographing them?

hello, Mr.Bailey,

my name is Lie Andrew Hakim, a young digital artist in Indonesia, quite a faithful Christian that's trying to make a living off the digital arts area,

anyways just a couple of days ago when a co-worker of mine, a non-believer joked 'you wanna see ghost-appearance'?' and then that's when i saw this in this photograph...


it may look like a regular red-eye, but on that exact day, i was really battling myself against cigarette, and in our church - we believe the manifestation of the Holy Spirit and that the body shall be kept holy..and then so i saw the 'evil spirit' of cigarette right there in the picture (i was quite shocked myself)...
