Mesmerizing Artworks by Chris Slabber

Chris Slabber is a South African digital artist, a winner of the 2014 A Design Award for Photography and Photo Manipulation. 

I grew up in the small South African town of Oudtshoorn at the heart of the Klein Karoo. This was where I gained my love for Surrealism and surrounding genres. I started off studying fine arts from a young age and eventually began to apply this knowledge in a more design like way.

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.
