Megan Jacobs – Hidden Mothers

Amazing!

The contemporary artist Megan Jacobs created this intriguing photography series called Hidden Mothers,  based on a research on classic baby portraits of the past.

 “The series Hidden Mothers references the early usages of photography. During this time photography was expensive and often one only had a handful of images during their lifetime. Exposure times were long and mothers who wanted a record of their children would often hide themselves under a piece of fabric and hold their children for the duration of the exposure to ensure a sharp image. These historic images are often referred to as “hidden mother” photographs. I have created formally similar images, as a metaphor for the unrecognised physical and emotional work that mothers do to support and nurture their children. Mothers are wrapped in colorful floral bed linens to elicit traditional notions of femininity and domestic spaces. The wrapping of each mother hides the details of her identity and functions as an expression of her inner psyche.”

Valentin van der Meulen – Erased Portraits

Amazing!

These detailed large scale charcoal drawings by the French artist Valentin van der Meulen are a true beauty. The particular thing that transforms this artworks into something more interesting, is the “final act”.

Once the drawing is completed, Valentin partially erases what he has done, creating a disappearing image. This concept suits very well with the internet era and the digital memory in general.
