Photographs from Sarah Lawrie.

Sarah is a Canadian photographer and visual artist living in Toronto. Throughout her childhood and teenage years she had a great love and curiosity for photography but it wasn’t until the death of her parents and several events following that her passion grew monumentally.

Determined and self taught she was able to learn the craft and improve her skills. She reveals strong, heartfelt emotions not only in her self portraiture but in every subject, as a way to express her innermost feelings of love and loss. The birth of her children expanded her vision and they are often  the subject of her work.

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.
