Newly discovered photographs show Victorians had a fun-loving side

Newly discovered photographs show Victorians had a fun-loving side | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Think the Victorians were a bunch of starchy fuddy-duddies with no sense of humour?

Or perhaps you view them as too prim and proper for their own good?

A newly discovered set of photographs shows that, far from being bound by the ‘We are not amused’ culture, Victorians had a fun-loving side.

The 200 images include a man dressed as a nun, another wearing a bonnet, and others slouching with cigarettes.

They were found by Dawn Parsonage-Kent, a collector of historical photographs, at a shop in Dunkeld, Scotland.

Anaïs Boileau photographs sun-seekers in this fun series

Anaïs Boileau photographs sun-seekers in this fun series | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

I’m loth to comment on summer’s swift disappearance or the vague possibility that it might get warm again in the coming weeks, but how can I miss the opportunity which this series by Anaïs Boileau has so generously handed me? This brilliant photo-series examines the women who live for a tan, happily sunning themselves with foil trays pressed to their chins and eye-protectors plastered to their sockets. There’s something gently teasing and kind of funny but also really well-constructed about her images – the props make for a natural frame so you’re confronted with a very immediate manifestation of our society’s obsession with bronzed skin, which seems more ridiculous the longer you think about it.
