Biljana a.k.a. Indigo is an artist from Serbia, who graduated from the University of Belgrade. She makes digital art, mostly collages, because it suits her personality best and gives her the freedom to explore as much as she needs. Biljana is terribly inquisitive by nature and sticking to one medium would make it her feel limited.
My mission is to constantly remind people that we are all one and that global love is what we should all strive for. I want to inspire as many people as possible to start making art, i.e. start expressing their feelings and getting to know themselves better that way.

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.
