Ghost Photo: The Man on the Wall


Last year, The Atlantic published “Why Do People Believe in Ghosts?”, an article exploring paranormal beliefs around the world. In it, author Tiffanie Wen shares a strange she took with her iPhone (left).

“The picture was taken in my apartment and the man, whom I can’t identify, was not actually in the apartment at the time,” Wen writes.

Though Wen says she cannot explain the picture, skeptics say the mysterious ‘man’ in the background is a reflection of some kind or an image projected onto the wall.

Though odd, the image is not entirely unique. A similar photo emerged on Note that both backgrounds appear white and featureless and that the ‘ghosts’ resemble the people in the photos (bald men, females with long hair).

What do you think of the photo? Ghost or logical explanation?
