Sasha Svirsky’s Feverish and Surreal Gifs

In his own charming words:  “ I am an artist and animation films director. I am from Russia, now I’m living in Moscow but originally I am from a village in the south of Russia the name of which could be translated as ‘Soviet fleece’. It’s
like a Golden fleece in ancient Greece but Soviet. For a living, I make animation films. Sometimes I make music videos for money and also my own films with someone financial support but mainly I do films just for fun without any certain purposes. In this way, I have a material that I don’t know what to do with and use it for making gifs.  I graduated as a painter from Rostov-on-Don college of art and then self-taught animation.“

Sasha Svirsky has been staff pick for his animation videos on Vimeo many times and has been featured at many other film festivals.  You can see his work at his website.

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.
