Dennis Hoogstad:  Elegance, simplicity

Dennis Hoogstad, illustrator, animator, and director, is from the Netherlands and that is where he lives and works on projects for clients all around the world.  He is a great example of the school of Motion Design in which elegance and simplicity is the guiding principle.  The way he started animating is a common story: “when I was about 14 years old or so, I discovered I could make gifs. That night I didn’t sleep at all, because I had a zillion ideas on what I could with that. In a way, I think that 14 year old boy creating animated loops never really disappeared”  I hope that Dennis never loses that great spirit!

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.
