Paranormal Portraits
Arinze Stanley
Corey Helford Gallery
Materials: charcoal & graphite

Arinze Stanley Egbengwu (b. 1993) in Lagos, Nigeria and graduated from Imo state University with a B.Eng in Agricultural engineering.

Starting at an early age of 6, Arinze had always been enthusiastic about drawing realistic portraits on paper. Being exposed to his family’s paper conversion business, Arinze grew to love paper and pencils as his toys at a very tender age. Over the years He gradually taught himself how to master both Pencils and Paper in harmony as a medium to express himself through what he calls his three P’s namely Patience, Practice and Persistence. These have guided him throughout his journey as an artist.

Working in a genre of art known as Hyper-realism and integrated with his personal experiences in Nigeria, Arinze drives at creating art that triggers a degree of  emotional connection between his viewers and his artworks. Also gearing his works towards social and political activism, he hopes to use his art to speak for those who can’t speak for themselves.

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.
