Digital Collages - Wouter Hisschemöller

Digital techniques still play an important role in his creative process. His paintings today are based on photographic material found online. Of the millions of photos that are uploaded and shared daily, he searches the web for ones he might use. Using Photoshop these are cut, pasted and reorganized into collages that form the basis for his paintings. The collage acts as an allegory for the city and its people; a sometimes strange, sometimes unusual mix where seemingly random elements meet to, maybe just for a moment, form a composition.

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.
