couldn't believe it, but it happened in front of me, the spoon continued bending"
GELLER Photographed at home in Sonning-On-Thames, England.
I arrived at Uri's
house with my full complement of cameras and lights. In addition, I brought a
solid spoon that was originally my grandmother's. Uri allowed me to photograph
the whole process as he bent the spoon by focussing his energy, and lightly touching
the spoon at the same time. Incredibly, it started to bend while I held it. I
then placed it on a table, and we watched as it bent some more. Uri is a high
energy, passionate, and kind man. In addition, he is a painter and sculptor. Barry
