The Art of Jonathan Edward Guthmann

Jonathan Edward Guthmann is an Australian artist working in a variety of mediums. His preferred technique is intaglio printmaking, a traditional method that involves making incisions into a sheet of metal, often with the use of corrosive liquids that bite into the surface, leaving a network of incised lines. These lines are then used to hold ink and with the aid of a large press, the resulting image is transferred onto dampened paper. Jonathan also works with pigmented inks, charcoal, graphite, conte and oil paints, often mixing these mediums with a unique approach to create distinctive works. He also has an academic background in theology, an area of research he is very passionate about and which greatly influences his creative life.

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.
