Paranormal phenomena have always been a source of fascination to people. In Freiburg they have been scientifically examined since the 1950s. The photographer and photo journalist Leif Geiges (1915–1990) worked for many years with the parapsychologist Hans Bender, professor at Freiburg University and founder of the Institute for Frontier Areas of Psychology and Mental Health.

Their astonishing photo material shows reconstructions of paranormal scenes or occult practices and experiments on extrasensory perception.
