Kevin then came under a lot of scrutiny for spending over 20 minutes setting up the photo instead of helping the child. Three months after taking the photo, he committed suicide.

During a search for Victorian examples of post-mortem photography, I came across these mysterious and extremely odd vintage portraits of families in which the mother is disguised as a chair. In some cases there seems to be a real attempt to make the figure of the mother appear like an actual chair; in other cases,like this one it looks like they simply want to conceal the mother's identity. Maybe it's to keep a live child still enough to take a clear photo or to keep a deceased one in…

A Victorian "hidden mother' memento mori / post mortem photo / photograph. In the Victorian Era, women holding infants were often covered; because the photograph is meant to be cropped to show only the infant.
