Photography: Immortalising The Dead By Capturing Life Through A Lens

Photography: Immortalising The Dead By Capturing Life Through A Lens

Share/Bookmark

Photography was originally a philosophical discussion and mathematical concept explored by the likes of Mo Di and Aristotle since the 4th Century.  The development of camera-produced photography, however, did not occur until the early 19th century when chemical photography was developed from the 1820s onwards, introducing monochromatic and eventually colour photographs (Lumière brothers, 1907). Since the emergence of commercial photography two centuries ago, the notion of capturing life through a lens and preserving a single moment in print has been one of the most popular and enduring trends in Western society. However, whilst modern photography focuses on seizing the living moment, containing the essence of life and all its finer details in a single image, the early days of photography found themselves filled with a much more morbid use of the artistic practice.

Memorial portraiture, often known as post-mortem photography or mourning portraits, was a popular practice in the Victorian era, though some modern cultures and religions continue the practice today. Due to the expense of photography, though cheaper and more accessible than traditional painted portraits, a photographed portrait was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for most people in the 1800s and many families chose to have those loved who had passed immortalised by the camera post-mortem, rather than have them lost forever and subject only to unreliable memories.

The corpse would be positioned in a lifelike pose, or at least in a pose that was not overtly cadaverous; they would often be sat in a specially-designed frame in a chair or amongst relativeswho would prop them up. For those unable to be staged realistically, photographs would be taken to give the impression that the deceased was merely in a deep sleep and for those who wished to further soften the image, flowers tended to be the most popular prop.These memorial portraits began to become unpopular and taboo in much of Europe and America around the turn of the 20th century, increasingly seen as distasteful and disrespectful, but the sentiment behind the photos is still understood and appreciated; to immortalise a loved one, their face and their self, by capturing them on camera as a prompt and testament to your memory of them.

Thankfully, photography these days has taken a cheerier turn with digital cameras in charge of capturing the everyday and family gatherings lending themselves to more entertaining pursuits such as candid moments and comedy gold, thanks to things like photo booth hire, handheld video cameras and karaoke. Even so, the next time you have your picture taken by a smartphone, a digital camera or even a good old brownie, don’t preoccupy yourself with a caption or scoff and moan about your ‘bad side’ – remember what the act of taking and being in a photograph really means – immortalising the self, capturing and preserving the living moment and connecting the present (which itself will become the past) with the generations too far in the future to think of. Photography means immortality.

The Science Of Photography Showcases The Art Of Discovery

The Science Of Photography Showcases The Art Of Discovery

Share/Bookmark

The methodical approach of science may seem far removed from the artistic spirit of photography, but the two fields are more compatible then many realize. Both photographers and scientists seek to study the world around them, and to make their discoveries known to all.

Scientific photography serves a practical purpose in allowing scientists to document their research and share it with the scientific community, but it serves another purpose aside from that. It allows the power of scientific discovery to be captured in images and shared with the world, whether they’re images of massive astral bodies or miniscule cells, of life-forms that dwell beneath the ocean or the life-forms contained within a test tube.

The history of scientific photography

Scientific photography emerged during the Victorian era, a period which saw both the advent of photography and the beginnings of modern science. So, naturally, it was the scientists who were amongst the first to extol the virtues of this new medium, immediately recognizing its ability to enhance the precision of their experimentation and record their research in greater detail.

They realized that the lens could see things a human eye could not, and believed it would help them explore worlds that were beyond human perception, whether distant space or the microscopic world of bacteria. Being a new technology unlike anything they had witnessed before, they were certainly prone to overestimating its capabilities, and some even went so far as to claim that it could perceive the human soul and reveal secrets about the world beyond death.

Such beliefs led to some odd experiments, such as French neurologist Guillaume Duchenne’s attempts to prove that the human face was linked to the soul, by applying electrical stimulation to the face and photographing the results.

On the other hand, some of the seemingly obscure scientific photographs of the time were part of experiments that produced some significant discoveries, such as Albert Londe’s attempts to determine the causes of a hysteria epidemic sweeping Europe and North America in the 19th century, and his conclusion that attacks of hysteria were linked to past trauma.

Becoming a scientific photographer

Scientific photography is generally considered a career within science rather than photography, and, according to macro-photography-for-all.com, the role is usually held by scientists, researchers and their assistants.

Nevertheless, there is a desire for images bearing the mark of a true photographer, and in our visual society that demand is only likely to grow. As a result, scientific photography is developing into an increasingly specialized field. What makes it unique from other forms of photography is the need to capture both the visible and invisible, so extensive knowledge of photographic techniques related to magnification and lighting is essential.

As of now, scientific photographers are expected to have a strong understanding of both their tools and the research they are documenting. According to the online education portal Now Learning, scientific photography requires both training in photography and a degree in a specialized field of science, such as biology, chemistry, physics or astronomy.

The awe of scientific discovery

Though the primary purpose of scientific photography is to advance our understanding of the scientific method, rather than to be aesthetically pleasing, any image that can achieve the effect of being both enlightening and inspiring will be all the more memorable for it.

Science is a technical discipline, requiring those who practice it to be both objective and methodical. But whether a scientific photographer chooses to be more scientist or photographer, the events they are likely to witness while involved in such endeavors will make it difficult to contain the artist within.

Matthew Flax can see the appeal of scientific photography, a career which has resulted in some amazing images and, in the case of a certain character from Marvel comics, superpowers.
