Ghost Mothers

There is something about these photographs that really caught my eye. The presence and absence of the parenting figure in each shot is fascinating and truly makes me want to learn more.
We obviously can't ignore the fact that these have something about them that is dark, and seems a little creepy.

    (not sure if that's where you found this or not, but I figured I'd share)

    Apparently it was a way for the parent (usually mother) to hold the child still so that the photo would be in focus. Which makes a lot of sense because of how long it would take a photo to capture one image back then. Any movement would create a blur.

    It doesn't make it any less disturbing though, I will say.
    Fantastic post! Thanks for sharing. :-)
