Unusual Embroidery by Danielle Clough

Danielle Clough is a Cape Town, South Africa-based designer, and embroidery artist. She completed her studies in art direction and graphic design at The Red and Yellow School before embarking on a career in visual art, digital design, and thing-making. Her embroidered works are unique, sometimes she uses thick thread to create images of flowers and other fauna on vintage tennis rackets, the strings acting as her loom. Sometimes these are portraits of her friends and loved ones, adapting black and white images of subjects into multi-colored works. You can see more work by Clough on her Instagram, and take a look into the artist’s process on her blog

Photos Are Always Funnier When You Add a Caption (31 pics)

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.
