Hello there, fellow Insanes,
I want to announce the Art Asylum's ([link]
new contest. The theme this time is post mortem photography.
Some of you might know this tradition of the 19th century. With the development of photography there came up the rite to photograph the recently deceased.
Now I ask you to do your own personal view or response of or to post mortem photography. It can be modern or old fashioned, something like a fake corpse in a crime scene or a dead that seems to sleep - there are no borders to your creativity and I'm looking forward to your interpretation of this hauntingly beautiful theme.
ALLOWED MEDIA: This time only photography and manipulation.
HOW TO SUBMIT: Just put your work into the "Current Contests" Folder ( I opened it for you). I will accept it if it doesn't hurt the rules
You can find the Art Asylum's gallery folder "CURRENT CONTESTS" here: [link]
For some inspiration you can visit the Art Asylum's newest blog, where you will find a lot of image material of the actual post mortem photography and examples in contemporary art plus a short article about the history of this tradition.
