Philippe Vignal is a French artist born in Mozambique in 1970, Philippe Vignal lived his childhood in Africa and kept its strength and beauty.

Graphic designer, this singular and self-taught artist, moved to Morocco 10 years ago. Deep and raw scars remain and impregnate his contrasting artworks, vibrating power and sensuality of black and white. A visual shock, a true meeting, a realistic face-to-face… that attracts and challenges at same time. Nudes, hyper-realistic faces are his inspiration, scarification and piercing of the Omo Valley’s tribes, from southern Ethiopia, punctuate and hone his artworks.

Stiff Pose Victorian Postmortem photography (140 Pics)

Postmortem photography or memento mori, the photographing of a deceased person, was a common practice in the 19th and early 20th centuries. The photographs were considered a keepsake to remember the dead. Child mortality was high during the Victorian era. For many children even a common sickness could be fatal. When a child or other family member died, families would often have a photograph taken before burial. Many times it was the first and last photograph they would ever possess of their loved one. Many postmortem photographs were close-ups of the face or shots of the full body. The deceased were usually depicted to appear as if they were in a deep sleep, or else arranged to appear more life-like. Children were often shown on a couch or in a crib, often posed with a favorite toy. It was not uncommon to photograph very young children with a family member, most frequently the mother. Adults were more commonly posed in chairs or even propped up on something.
