Been away for a while work stuff, while away i had time to go through some old stuff on my computer concerning the weird world of photography.
This thread is all about the weird photography (as we see it today) of how the Victorians used photography to illustrate death and memories it.

This was the way the photographer of the time gave the children comfort knowing mother was with them while being photographed, mothers wearing of a cloth over her head was to make the viewer more interested in the children's image.

Mother is the sofa.

This photograph shows the dead brother in a relaxed sleep like pose, the standard for this type of image. Some photographers would draw eyes on the dead person's closed eyelids for realism.

The dead ones always seem a little freaky to me!
