Unnatural Creatures by Caitlin Hackett

Caitlin Hackett was raised near the wildness of Northern California. She went to the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY to study drawing then later return to the Oakland area to explore her passions for nature & myth.

Ever since I was child I have been attracted to natural science & fairy tale illustrations alike. However it was only after seeing Walton Ford’s show at the Brooklyn Museum that I realized I could create work pertaining to what I was passionate about, the tumultuous human-animal relationship. I hope to remind those who view my artwork that we too are animals, embedded in this fragile world even as we poison it.

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.
