The Powerful Feminine Painting of  Brianna Angelakis

In the bio for Florida-based artist Brianna Angelakis she describes of her work: “I juxtapose the female figure with the wildness of nature to convey a sense of female power.”  Indeed the striking figures that populate her oil compositions appear untethered by the laws of time or reality, at once Romantic yet thoroughly modern.  Their faces may bear heavy weight, yet their sorrow is not attendant with weakness.  Instead, their inner struggles take on an elemental quality, a phenomenon as untameable as the skies or the sea.     Hear them roar.     Brianna’s Tumblr    Txt Via

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.
