Ego, Toby Compton

An appreciation of the individual. To journey through life successfully one must develop a sense of self. This piece symbolically demonstrates the pull of consciousness within oneself and an increasing development of self –awareness.

I’m a 20-year-old British illustration student studying at the University of Portsmouth. The image I posted was one of five drawings made from Biro pen only, and they are all drawings of hands in various positions. The sculptures are my friends which he sells in shows in London so this is a step up for me to draw them and be part of his show!

I also draw animals and landscapes.. anything that looks good :) I’m also a keen analog film photographer! Instagram

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.
