Can anyone tell me where this photo came from? I checked out pics on search for Victorian post-mortem photographs, and not only did I not find this photo, but there were no others as convincingly life-like. This makes me wonder whether this is actually a VPMP. And why is "mortem" underlined as misspelled as I type it? That is the correct spelling.

I believe it is a death photo. It was a very popular pratice and ummm one that does continue today. Each to their own grief. Personally I could not do that. I would rather remember them full of life. Back then there may not have been another photograph of the child to cherish. You can search by Victorian Post Mortem Photos...this is very sad and some what disturbing, but I had to check it out.

Actually, mcsuede had it right. This is a 'memento mori,' literally a 'remembrance of death.'

That's creepy as hell

I don't think thats a death picture. It looks photoshopped to me. Either that or I suppose she was propped up with a stick and stuck in a freezer to mantain that pose.

Who in their right mind would want a picture like that of their deceased child? Another practice from the 19th and early 20th centuries was to photograph the deceased party lying in their deathbed or their casket. pretty creepy, but it was quite common.

So now you're a necrophiliac, Josh? You really are a right little perv! Do you also go for super-heroes? Animals? Stuffed animals? Furries? Old men? Pumpkins? OMG! That's it, isn't it... you get a pole for pumpkins, don't you? Admit it, whenever you carve a Jack-o-lantern, it looks surprised, doesn't it? Don't try and hide it, it's obvious that you like to 'squish' into your squash.

She was likely already dead and had in fake eyes. Death portraits were common in the early ages of photography. Hence the skull--it's a momento mori.

What, is she from the movie "The Grunge"? She has no whites in her eyes. How creepy.
