Edward Victor's Shadows


In a previous post I gave a link to the British Pathe Archives which hosts some fantastic archive footage of magicians. Imagine my surprise when I typed in “Edward Victor” and found two films of him performing his shadowgraphy. Edward Victor was unsurpassed in this area and throughout his life his success in this field always overshadowed (forgive the pun) his magic. For more information on the life of Edward Victor (plus some unpublished material) I’d recommend “The Magic Of Edward Victor’s Hands” by Rae Hammond. Enjoy.
