Illustrations by Delphine Labedan

Delphine Labedan is an illustrator from Girona, Spain. Currently, she working as director and professor of drawing at the School of Fine Arts (EMBA) in Vila de Salt, since 2006.

I prefer large formats (canvas or wood) and diverse techniques such as coal, pastel, collage, ink, watercolor, and oil, which I enjoy in creating mixed media works. However, my impulsive temperament collided with the wait and patience needed for most of these techniques, so I currently work mostly with ink pens, watercolor and India ink. As a result, I have achieved a fresh and direct approach, and speed and immediacy of execution have become features of my recent work.

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.
