Portland photographer Christie MacLean did a fun take on the Victorian era concept of ghost mother portraits, using pets in place of children. Back in the day exposure times were lengthy, and babies and small children are notoriously difficult to keep still. Photographers would hide the mother, usually under draped fabric, so that they could hold the kiddo in an attempt to minimize movement. I love the way the relationship between pet and owner is so obvious in each of Christie’s photographs in this project, brilliant idea.
