The Surreal Art of Jaroslaw Jasnikowski

Jaroslaw Jasnikowski was born in Legnica,Poland in 1976. He took up painting in 1991. His first artistic steps were taken under the direction of Mirosława Lickiewicz, an artist and teacher from Legnica. At that time, science-fiction art was the artist’s main inspiration.

In the mid-90’s, Jasnikowski discovered works of Salvador Dalí and other surrealists. In 1998, on advice of Wojciech Siudmak, he decided to devote his work to fantastic realism which according to the artist is the most fascinating and the least restrictive form of expression. Currently, Jarosław Jasnikowski is one of the leading artists of this genre in Poland and his paintings have become parts of art collections all around the world. 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.
