Beyond the Dark Veil: Post Mortem Photography
With the rise of photography in the 19th and early 20th centuries, it became a common practice to photograph loved ones after death. Often they were positioned with living family members, appearing to be sleeping or propped up with special stands to seem lifelike.
The Thanatos Archive is home to an extensive collection of post-mortem photos, which they used to assemble this high-quality volume showcasing this macabre practice from a time when death was a normal part of every day life.
Beyond the Dark Veil: Post Mortem & Mourning Photography from The Thanatos Archive also includes newspaper clipping, ads for funeral products, essays from Jack Mord (Thanatos Archive owner), Bess Lovejoy, Marion Peck, Joanna Roche, Joe Smoke, and more.
