Renditions of Historical Events in Dioramas by Jasper de Beijer

Dutch artist Jasper de Beijer’s creates and photographs large-scale models made of drawn material and constructed bodies, environments, and ephemera, giving the resulting images a dreamlike quality. In carefully researching and creating these scenes, de Beijer aims to engage the ways we understand images of historical significance. The resulting photos are both powerfully complex and eerily familiar. 

The photo series is called Mr. Knight’s World Band Receiver, a reference to Christopher Knight, who abandoned society in 1986 at 20 years old, living in Maine’s woods for 27 years with no access to media except for a transistor radio.

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.
