Powerful Black and White Art by Annysa NG

Annysa Ng is a contemporary artist who works in New York and Hong Kong.  In her black and white series she illuminates the dichotomy between the Western and Eastern cultural influences present in Hong Kong.  

In the two-dimensional works, the featureless blackout faces of the figures are specifically tied to identity and the history of Hong Kong… . . Combing period European fashion with traditional Chinese costume, the work does not merely illustrate a combination of cultures take place in Hong Kong, but specifies the paradox of constructing void identity. Via Annysa Ng Artist Statement

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.
