Jaw-Dropping Dance Portraits Caught With Flour And Photography...

Jaw-Dropping Dance Portraits Caught With Flour And Photography By Alexander Yakovlev                                                                                

Photography might not steal your soul (except for selfies), but it’s adept at capturing the intangible magic of the moment. And few do it better than Alexander Yakovlev with his dance photography. He has a good eye for dancers and scene composition, catching them at their most expressive and dynamic. Watching a dance live, the eye wouldn’t have time to register the majesty of all the moves.

But Yakovlev’s photography gives the chance to appreciate the art done of the moving human body, and the incredible grace of ballet. More than that, his flour series captured movement well, like a real life version of motion lines.

Alexander Yakovlev is Russian photographer out of Moscow. While his university education is in law, his passion is dance photography. Yakovlev also does occasional shoots of female fitness athletes and his works are featured in fitness magazines.

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.
