"Trying to get a baby or a fussy toddler to sit still for a photograph can feel like a herculean task. Luckily, it only takes a second to get the shot. In the nineteenth century, however, it was a different story—particularly when it came to tintype portraits, which required a long exposure.
Photographer Laura Larson’s series, Hidden Mother, presents a survey of nineteenth-century tintype portraits in which the mother of the child was included in the photograph, but obscured.
In some instances, the mother would hold her child, with a cloth or props hiding her from the lens, or she would be painted over by the photographer after the image had been taken. In other examples, the mother is entirely absent from the frame, save for an arm, holding the child in place.
The results are both funny and slightly disturbing. The mother appears as an uncanny presence, Larson writes in a statement. Often, she is swathed in fabric, like a ghost.”

I think reblogs where the only commentary is, “This is important,” are starting to enter the same irritation space occupied by, “If you don’t reblog this, you are a bad person,” and, “THE NEWS ISN’T TALKING ABOUT THIS THING I JUST GOT FROM A NEWS SITE!”
This is important.
Why doesn’t this have more notes?!!?!??!
Everyone should stop and read this!!
