Photographer Cayetano Ferrnadez uses toy dolls to build stories

Spanish artist Cayetano Ferrández prepares scenarios radically minimalist, suitable for a phenomenology of the essential, armed with an illumination of chiaroscuro where light is part of the language that modulates the meanings. The light becomes one means of concealing and revealing, to say without saying, make us also see in the shadows that hide facial features or members of the body / text Enric Mira

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.
