The World Hoops - Photogapher/Activist Kaid Ashton

Kaid Ashton is hooked on exploring & capturing the world through the lens of his camera. When Kaid moved to Taiwan & immersed himself in another culture, he found his camera was the best tool to bridge the gap between cultural differences & forge friendships. Kaid has traveled to over 40 countries using his camera to document unique moments & people throughout the world.

While creating a series of work in the heart of Manila, Kaid was able to interact with the people of the city, who were surprisingly eager to offer their assistance. He was inspired by their generosity & decided to create something more permanent, The Homeschool Project . Kaid became part of these neighbourhoods, teaching art to street children & bringing their stories to the world’s attention. To date, Kaid along with the help of volunteers & the Office of Culture and Design in Manila have taught 33 classes to over 2,000 students

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.
