Atmospheric Illustration from Faryn Hughes

Faryn Hughes is an illustrator from Saint Paul, Minnesota who specializes in dreamy and ethereal watercolor works inspired by nature scenes, animal wildlife, fairy tales, and oriental designs. Most of her work is done in a water based medium because of its natural ability to capture the movement and fluidity of a childlike imagination and the complex depth of dreams. She loves designing artwork that creates an encompassing, utopian atmosphere for the viewer while also telling a hidden narrative. Faryn’s previous illustrative projects have been for children’s books, editorial concepts, textiles, and advertisements.

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.
