Stormy Black and White Photography by Mitch Dobrowner

You should absolutely do yourself a favor and check out the stunningly beautiful landscape photography of Mitch Dobrowner. If you’re a fan of Ansel Adams, Dobrowner’s photography will be right up your alley, as Dobrowner draws from the inspiration of Adams in his own work, which is very apparent. His work primarily focuses on the West and Midwest, showcasing the beauty of the landscape of that part of the country, as well as the threateningly gloomy and perilous nature of the weather that can quickly escalate to levels of destructive force.

As I recently traveled to the area of the country that Dobrowner primarily focuses on with much of his work, seeing his photography immediately brought me back to my travels. The landscapes of Wyoming, North and South Dakota, are truly breathtaking, flat, and dramatic, but it’s amazing how quickly changes in weather can occur; I love that Dobrowner’s work is a reminder of the beauty of this area, but accompanies it with the reality that many residents in that part of America know all too well.

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.
