Photography by Ken Hermann

Explosion is a personal project of Ken Hermann, Copenhagen, Denmark based artist, and it is the second in a series of two. Ken captures explosions milliseconds after detonation.  

(…) This time a teamed up with a professional fireworker who was responsible of the explosions because in my first run I almost burned down a whole field with some home made stuff. The explosions are made of different kind fireworks all controlled from a safe distance with a controller. Some of the fireworks are modified a little bit to get the right look and feel. The challenge part is to capture the explosion in the right moment. There is a lot of stuff you can’t plan ahead but this is what I like about These kind of project. You never know what goes off.

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.
