The most beautiful expression of love and grief in the Victorian era was the tradition of post mortem photography. To capture a last glimpse of a loved one forever on film became an art form. Come take a look at examples of this art while learning the ins and outs of recognizing post mortem versus living subjects. The symbols used to convey loss and grief, the props of mourning, and the deep beauty of a love that passes beyond the veil of death. After the panel, there will be the opportunity to take your very own “post mortem” pictures. We will be setting up a tableau including some of the symbolism discussed.
