Realistic Sugar Sculptures by Joseph Marr

Joseph Marr born 1979 is an Australian artist of English/Maori heritage who lives and works in Berlin, Germany. He is known for his anatomically perfect sugar constructions of the human body that explore issues of desire and mortality.

Working with sugar is wonderful and difficult. Its so colourful and textural, having similarities to paint. But then there is the temperature which is firstly dangerous but also it drops so quickly which influences the viscosity, so I find myself having to work really quickly to get what I need. Its a sensory overload, the smell, the colour, the heat and the honey like movement… its sharp like glass and smooth like Marble and at the same time rough like concrete… unpredictable.

Photos Are Always Funnier When You Add a Caption (31 pics)

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.
