Hidden Mother Photography

This was a practice where the mother, often disguised or hiding, often under a spread, holds her baby tightly for the photographer to insure a sharply focused image. [from Hidden Mother Flickr group]

    If not eerie enough on the merit of the cloaked androgynous figures, the implication that these pictures were oft (read: occasionally) done with deceased subjects takes it to a whole new level. Wonderful gallery.
