Conversations with an Alchemist on Photography, Light, and Magic

Friday, October 07 - 10:00AM to 10:50AM

George "GK" Kingswood is a fourth-generation photographer, who also calls himself an alchemist - a label he uses in the same way fourteenth century European explorers of physicality and spirit once did. His lineage originated when the invention of photography coincided with England's Egyptian revival, the rise of secret societies, and spiritualism. It was then that GK's progenitor, Abraham Kingswood recognized the inherent potential of "light drawing" as a medium for insight into the workings of the cosmos and took it up as the central activity for his "Great Work". 


This presentation offers an overview of the Kingswood's nineteenth century mystical tradition, theories, and practices and how they continue to be performed today. Attendees will discover a previously unexplored photo-historical discipline, based in ancient Egyptian mysteries, arcane transformative methods, and an in-depth investigation of how light and visual imagery can be used to speed up the process of human evolution.
