As some may remember, last year I gave a lecture in Lausanne with Corridor regarding the history and objectives of Subtilitas, my personal practice Part Office, thoughts on working in Los Angeles, and a few other side projects. The video is now up, fittingly almost at the 10 year anniversary of the creation of this site. It was nice to reflect on its beginnings, and consider where it stands now within the milieu of online architectural media. Thank you for listening, and I encourage feedback, thoughts, and opinions; please write with any

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.
