Brazil’s “Museum of Tomorrow” (Museu do Amanhã)

Just in time for the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro the Museu do Amanhã opens up in Rio. From designfather.com:

The Museum of Tomorrow (Museu do Amanhã), designed by architect Santiago Calatrava (http://ift.tt/zsXvqo) , has just been inaugurated in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Located on Mauá Pier, the museum is the cornerstone of the plan to revitalise Rio’s previously derelict old port district, Porto Maravilha (meaning “marvellous port”), an area intrinsically linked with Rio’s cultural history. According to Calatrava, Carioca culture and Brazilian nature, particularly the bromeliads in Rio’s Botanical Gardens, were both sources of inspiration for its design.

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.
