Hidden Mother #vintage #photography This was a practice where the mother...often disguised or hiding often under a spread...holds her baby tightly for the photographer to insure a sharply focused Image.
Vintage Photo of an Invisible Mother & Her Daughter, This was a practice where the mother, often disguised or hiding under a spread, holds her baby tightly for the photographer to insure a sharply focused image.
Mothers hidden in Victorian portraits of children - this practice became poplar to control unruly children but it was also used as a memorial to a deceased child... (I don't understand why they just didn't take a picture of a mother with her children).
"Where's Ma? Oh, she's the one ensconced in the rug." - about "hidden mother" photographs. I was thinking it might be the nanny, and not the mother - as the Victorian mothers didn't usually take care of the children herself, at least not the mothers from the class with enough money to take photos... And memento mori? As far as I know dead eyes stare straight forward... but what do I know.

This was a practice where the mother, often disguised or hiding, often under a spread, holds her baby tightly for the photographer to insure a sharply focused image.’ Some older children also still need Mom hidden but in the picture - The Hidden Mother

Hidden Mothers in formal baby photos... Can't decide if this is genius or creepy?!
Hidden Mother? Weird. “Hidden Mother” was a 19th century portrait trend where mothers, who were basically dressed a “ghost,” would hold their young children still while being photographed. The end result was, well… haunting and creepy.
A Victorian Memento Mori, or post mortem photograph, of a mother who died in childbirth alongside her children.
Pretend your mother is NOT disguised as a chair, children: Extraordinary photos capture 19th century fad for draping mum in a sheet in family portraits
All these old photos have something in common, mothers are hidden. It was a strange practice where mothers were disguised, hidden or faded, which held their children tightly, so that the photographer could get a clear image.
A 'hidden mother' photograph. In the Victorian Era, women holding infants were often covered because the photograph is meant to be cropped and framed to show only the infant, or to make the focus entirely on the children. The original photograph is creepy. Passport photos of infants are still taken this way in some countries.

Hidden Mothers in Victorian Photos. Photos took hours in these times, seems children were just as squirmy then as they are today, because another amusing convention developed: photographs containing hidden mothers trying to keep their little ones still enough for a non-blurry picture. These fantastic portraits of children (found via Retronaut) all contain their mother, disguised as chairs or camoflauged under decorative throws behind them. Can you spot all the mothers and one father? More here.
