Hidden Mother
title


 
“Hidden Mother” was a 19th century portrait trend where mothers, who were basically dressed a “ghost,” would hold their young children still while being photographed. The end result was, well… haunting and creepy.

There’s a whole Flickr group pool dedicated to the “Hidden Mother” era.
