Reeves, M.
London restaurant proprietor who, in association with F. M.
Parkes, gained renown in 1877 as one of the earliest practitioners
of spirit photography in England. He was said to have contributed
a considerable part of the team’s power, as without
him Parkes could not obtain recognizable spirit ‘‘extras’’ on his
photographic plates. The association was dissolved when
Reeves emigrated to Canada. Many of the psychic pictures that
appeared on their plates were symbolic. (See also psychic photography)
