Post Mortem Photography

Somthing I am highly intrested in  would have to be post mortem photography.
Post mortem photogaphy was very popular in the victorian era. In those days it was considered a form of art that was apperciated by millions!
most of the dead were photographed in a recling postion, they used belts to hold them in an upright postion.
the most common post mortem photos were of mothers holding their dead babies.

the photos were ment to be cheerful,as a way to remember the dead loved one.
so next time you attend a funeral...besure to take your camera.........

until then...

with love and arsenic....Miss Ann Thrope
