the entertainer behind the screen

Pay no attention to the figure behind the screen. H. P. Lovecraft’s visit to that New York hot spot, Club R’lyeh, left him ill at ease. It was the jazz music & musicians,  that unsettled him.

Phantasm Photos: 1-4

 

 

Over the years the phantasm has been photographed . While changing photographic methods captured impressions of the entity to varying levels of success, there remains evidence of some features being consistent.

Makes it rather difficult to get photographers willing to participate in research.
