Although the double body image of the Holy Shroud (HS) is still today inexplicable and even less reproducible, various hypotheses have been formulated which attempt to explain at least in part what is observed on the most important Relic of Christianity. Many of these hypotheses refer to an intense energy emitted by the corpse that often comes out of traditional science and calls into question the Resurrection, which obviously cannot be reproduced in the laboratory. This work overcomes this problem by proposing as a hypothesis for the formation of the HS body image an energy source very similar to that which develops every year inside the Holy Sepulcher of Jerusalem: the Holy Fire (HF) which is associated with high intensity electric phenomena. According to the new hypothesis formulated here, the Divine Photography, this electrical energy would have interacted with the body fluids emitted by the corpse to form an image. Some experiments have given very encouraging results which seem to reproduce, even if in small samples, almost all if not all the very peculiar characteristics of the HS body image.
