loish:

Hey friends, hope you are all well and safe. I’ve been posting info and resources in my instagram stories and on my twitter, but I know that that I have reach here on Tumblr also, so I am posting here too.

It’s been heartbreaking to see the injustices that took place over the last few weeks: the deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and Ahmaud Arbery, followed by violent treatment of protestors. I live in Europe, but racism and police violence against people of color is not an ‘American problem.’ Racism thrives here and always has. In the Netherlands, people of color who are brave enough to demonstrate against racism have been vilified, bullied, and treated violently by police. Police violence has claimed black lives here too. These deaths, and the systemic racism that fueled them, are unacceptable. This is something that must be addressed directly, not derailed by shifting the focus to other subjects, not met with force or violence, and not ignored with silence. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Let’s give momentum to those brave voices and organizations who are confronting injustice and racism head on. They are doing vital and important work that has a worldwide impact, and they need our support.  Here is an amazing overview, generously assembled by @dehyedration, which links to a variety of different resources. Please take a look and consider helping in any way you can!

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.
