TRANSCEND - Portrait series by Rae Senarighi

“Transcend is a series of portraits featuring transgender and gender non-conforming artists, activists and leaders from around the world. All works are acrylic paint on canvas and range in size from 36" x 36" to 72" x 96". TRANSCEND will be touring nationwide in the US in 2018 (and prints will be shown in London, UK). Living openly as transgender requires the personal courage to present authentically in oppressive environments. The subjects in this portrait series live out in the open all over the world, thus choosing integrity over safety daily. Using large canvases, bright colors and wide-open skies, these rising transgender leaders are literally and figuratively taking up space. I’m a transgender non-binary artist currently living and working in Portland, Oregon.”

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.
