Bizarre Victorian Era Portraits (23 pics)

Posted in Lifestyle » Retro   12 Nov 2011   / 27840 views

Photography was still new during the reign of Queen Victoria, and participants had to sit motionless for a while before a photo could be taken. Strangely, the mothers had to drape sheets over their heads for the photos, making for extremely weird portraits of their kids.

Yeah, I guess they're from MEMENTO MORI. All these kids are dead. That's why a person has to be behind them to hold them. They used to take pics of dead people in old days. Watch "The Others", directed by Alejandro AmenĂ¡bar.

Where the fuck you see these kids dead? your fuckin brain is dead. Don't watch movies so much , they make your brain turn into shit. Oh, I forgot, your mind is already a shit.

If they were memento mori I don't see the point of people with drapes over them. You could just prop them up with whatever. Then again if the kids are alive the presense of their mother, even covered up, would probably make the kid stay still for the new seconds that it takes to take a picture in those days.
