I heard about that as well
, but regarding people who achieve such auric photochemical reproductions using other media: I encountered 1960s 35mm photo and current Polaroid 3 1/4 x 4 1/4 medium format packfilm so-far on my hear-say list.
There is a "medium" here in London who earned a decent living using Polaroid SX-70 to make photographs of people who's aura appear after she turbofaned or blow-dried the developing Pola. The color that aura has apparently says something about the character and persona you are. The BBC inserted a not-too-serious sub-plot about her in one episode of "Home Front" some years ago, with Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen and Diarmuid Gavin undergoing auric analysis to come up with a color scheme for one of their house/garden projects.
As Polaroid discontinued SX-70 two years ago, I think she had to move to 600 film. Not sure if that changed her auric abilities in any way
So far, however, reviewing 25 years of Super 8 filmmaking under (occassionally) crappy light, none of the actors had her/his auric shining banned on Kodachrome, Plus-X or Vision2 yet. Sorry to be dissapointing here.
Although... Jack Nicholson in "The Shining", in the scene where he...
