See creepy vintage 'hidden mothers' photos (with a modern twist)11/13/2012
Victorian photographers must have had the creepiest job in recorded history. When they weren't taking photos of dead people for posterity, they took portraits of young children, who, thanks to the limited technology of the day, now look ghostly, if not plain unhappy. Look not-even-all-that closely, and you'll see the human shapes of mothers trying to hide behind them, as they hold their children still during the film's long exposure time. This creepy aesthetic has served as a point of departure for a pair of photographers in Amsterdam, Anuschka Blommers and Niels Schumm, whose modern updates on the phenomenon can be seen on the right side of the image above, with more toward the end of the slideshow.
