In Search of the Unfathomable

14 October, 2009

I recently contributed an article about the photographer Anna Linderstam to 1000 Words Magazine. Anna is a young Swedish photographer fascinated by the moments of transformation that people pass through when under stress.

    As the hypnotherapist who worked with
    Anna Linderstam –I enjoyed your article–
    but wish point out that your comment that
    ‘the sitters could be MANIPULATED (my capitals) into a
    physical response by the power of suggestion.’
    —is not what is going on. You cannot force
    anyone in hypnosis to act against their will-
    Hence the sitters responded voluntarily-
    to the suggestions–(without manipulation.)

    • Thank you much for your kind words about my article on Anna. I fear that my use of the English language is not as clear as I would want. I do understand the distinction you have made now that I have heard it. What I was trying to discuss was how Anna in all her work, asks her sitters to respond to stimulus but in a way that is emotionally rather than actually manipulative.
