Remember the "Guillermo del Toro: At Home with Monsters" exhibition? It's now on view at @agotoronto until January 7. Head to our Instagram story to see more photos of the exhibition. Pictured here: Guillermo Del Toro’s Bleak House, photo Joshua White, J.W. Pictures Unknown. Hidden Mothers, 1870s. Tintypes. Anonymous gift, 2009. Art Gallery of Ontario. On view @agotoronto In the late 1880s, a clear photographic image required 18-30 seconds of stillness. The best way to achieve this with squirming babies was to have their mother hold them – but rather than having both parent and child in the image, photographers covered the mother in a cloth. Viewers were meant to ignore the ghostly, shrouded figures looming behind the children. #GDTAGO#LACMAEverywhere#ThrowbackThursday
