Sleeping Beauty: Memorial Photography in America,by Stanley Burns

Sleeping Beauty: Memorial Photography in America

Stanley Burns

Availability: Out of stock

Postmortem photography made 1840-1930.
This volume presents a chronological arrangement of postmortem photography 1840-1930; no other collection of this material has been made available despite recent interest in the American way of death. What emerges is a vivid visual history of the changes in American customs. We can see the change in death concepts and funerary practices, from the image of death as a stark Puritan journey for a sinner to the late Victorian beautification of death and its interpretation as a restful sleep for a redeemed soul.
