One-Frame Films: The Photographic Works of Gregory Crewdson

Brooklyn based photographer Gregory Crewdson (b. 1962) approaches his photographs with the eye and mind of a filmmaker, constructing elaborate set pieces and directing fleets of models to create his evocative and extraordinarily detailed ‘one-frame films’. His filmic flair, a marriage the documentary style of William Eggleston and Walker Evans with the dream-like vision of filmmakers such as Stephen Spielberg and David Lynch, has taken him across the world, with his works being exhibited widely in the United States and Europe and included in many public collections, including The Museum of Modern Art, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Brooklyn Museum and The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. His awards include the Skowhegan Medal for Photography, the National Endowment for the Arts Visual Artists Fellowship, and the Aaron Siskind Fellowship.

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.
