Real post mortem photograph, truly amazing. Not very many people deemed "freaks" in the victorian era were kept and raised by families who had enough money to have post mortem photography done. This is truly one of a very few like it.
FAKE. Obviously, but I have seen it on other PM boards. OK, lets employ some critical thinking. The purpose of memento mori was to remember and memorialize a dear departed loved one. WHY would they take a picture of a body in that state? How would this be a good memory for the person? No wonder people think Victorians were creepy. This IS a modern manipulation of a Victorian photo.
Another horrifying picture - but not a genuine vintage photo. This one is often passed around as a Victorian postmortem photo of two sisters. In fact, it is a digital manipulation by artist Shoraye Brooks Miracle made in 2008. I have also pinned the original 1851 photo on which it is based.
post mortem....that's a frightening pic....what were these people back then thinking of taking pictures of the dead as if they are alive?
This picture, always titled "The Other Sister", keeps coming up in my vintage photo searches. I don't know if this is a (very) post mortem photo, if this lady was disfigured in a fire, if it's photo manipulation, or what the story is. Makes me sad though.
I am so happy to have found the original picture of two (alive) sisters! There is a macabre photo manipulation, with the one on the left as a rotted corpse, making the rounds as postmortem.
SERIOUSLY, people! This is not a post mortem. It's an obvious photoshop. Click thru and view before and after images on Imgur.
This picture has been posted before as a post mortem, but I don't think it is that at all. The disfigured woman was either born with some kind of affliction and lived to adulthood in spite of it, or she may have suffered severe burns when she was younger. People had to live with these types of disfigurements back then more than they do today. It's fairly obvious that the "normal" woman was quite fond of the afflicted one.
FAKE. Obviously, OK, lets employ some critical thinking. The purpose of memento mori was to remember and memorialize their dear departed loved one. WHY would they take a picture of a body in that state? How would this be a good memory for them? No wonder people think they were creepy. This is no doubt a modern manipulation of a Victorian photo. Not sure is it is the work of Vincent Djorkaeff, but if not, it is very similar to his stuff.

Taking on New York on her own terms, Ann's irrepressible and independent spirit baffles her parents, but wins the heart of beau Don Hollinger (Ted Bessell) and inspires pals Jerry and Margie (Bernie Koppell and Ruth Buzzi).
