Charlie Davoli Creates Fantastical Worlds on his iPhone

The dreamy landscapes of Charlie Davoli resemble snapshots from a parallel universe. Yet they all come from the hands of the artist, who literally creates unreal worlds by shooting pictures with his iPhone and then editing them with apps like PsTouch, iDesign, Superimpose, Matter, and Mextures. He then posts his fascinating photo collages on Instagram.

Davoli was born in Singapore, but through “a bizarre twist of fate,” at the age of six moved to the homeland of his father, a small town on the Italian peninsula of Salento. His work manifests the fusion of these two cultures in the form of duality: Davoli goes on a Wes Anderson-like way with balance and composition, so that the elements almost always align with each other. Ultimately, his works symbolize two worlds that mirror each other.

Visual paradoxes, perfect symmetry, and optical illusion play an important role for the photo artist. Davoli says, “My inspiration comes from a combination of the supernatural images from the Italian artist De Chirico, my love for geometry of Bauhaus, and the pop culture of Warhol and Lichtenstein… And all with a touch of retro sci-fi. ” Txt via Creators Project

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.
