I found these photos in an Etsy shops. They were too expensive for me (as much as i love them) but I still wanted to download and share. Besides, I'm sure the seller won't mind some publicity. ;)



Upon first glance they don't immediately register as post mortem. However, upon close inspection there is really no doubt that the people are dead. Anyway, I'd heard of people taking post mortems by placing the deceased person in a metal stand and taking the photo as if they were alive and standing up, but I've never seen them before.

Ive seen a slough of those types... I love them. LOVE THEM.
Sometimes they have open eyes painted on their eyelids, sometimes they are laying down, sometimes upright and posed,.. I've seen lots of sitting ones and group photos of brothers/sisters/parents/spouse with the deceased as a final goodbye.

These are VERY good ones that look very lifelike.. but you can see the stands behind them and a blankness to the face that seems eerie.

Yeah, you can't tell in this but in the full-size high-res scan you can see that the girl's eyes have totally been re-touched.

Ew, yeah, the stand behind the dude. That's wicked.

I love these.
