Victorian Post-Mortem Photography
Of all the shocking images available online, one of the strangest and most unsettling phenomena dates back to Victorian times. In the 19th century, post-mortem photography thrived when families who could not afford a painted portrait of a lost loved one could opt for a quicker and less expensive option. The images helped families immortalize the dearly departed in a number of ways.
The poses of the deceased depend on the subject’s age and the family’s personal preference. For instance, younger children were often portrayed in a deep sleep in a crib or on a couch while adults were propped up as if alive with their eyes open or sometimes captured inside their coffins.
