Possibly he's been in the clutches of a taxidermist? :shock:

He wasnt put in the hands of a taxidermist this was most likely taken within a few days of his death. victorian post mortem photo known as a memento mori was mainly an american thing they beliebve 80 % of photos of that era were of the dead such as the one below.

Sounds like a good idea to me. Sort of a shame we don't do it now. My friend took a bunch of photos of her dead uncle in his coffin. Her parents thought it was terrible of her, but I don't see anything wrong with it. :D

- with early photography it was a great way of getting a pretty clear and focussed subject in a portrait... :P

Which one of them is dead? :lol:
Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

The rest of us are a bit crap.

The one that's in the middle - who's totally in focus cause she's not breathing or moving at all! :wink:

Yes the more in focus the less likely they moved during the long exposure [rigor mortis]!!
I dont think its particulary crazy they were surrounded by death alot mortality rates were really bad and this was a cheaper way to remember the dead rather than huge portraits they also liked taking hair and turning them into pictures !!!
