Photography can be used to document history, and in some cases, it can be utilized to capture glimpses into the past. Although tales of ghosts have been told throughout history, one exhibit has been dedicated to making skeptics into believers.

The "Phantoms, Shadows and Phenomena" exhibit has opened at Ohio University's Kennedy Museum of Art to shed light on what goes bump in the dark, according to the Columbus Dispatch. Paranormal activity has been cited for years in the museum building that stands above the Ohio University (OU) campus, hitting home for students and alumni alike.

"They're photos of the former female dormitories, public spaces, hallways and what had been individual rooms," Laura Larson, a photographer and OU professor, told the news source. "You make of them what you'd like."

Eight artists contributed to the exhibit from places as far as Belgium, Britain and Puerto Rico. Their works may inspire amateur photographers and paranormal enthusiasts alike to pursue careers in the industry.

Approximately half of the individuals who held jobs as photographers in 2008 were self-employed, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
