Paintings by Andrew Gifford

Andrew Gifford (b. Sheffield, 1970) gained a first class degree in Fine Art from Newcastle at Tyne University, is now recognized as one of the most innovative landscape painters working today.  Andrew’s work is concerned with the shifting effects of light and atmosphere. The industrial landscapes of the north, railway lines into London and the Thames have all been themes that have allowed Andrew to show us the beauty of what otherwise we might pass by.

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.
