Victorian headless portraits were a fad in Britain in the late 19th century. In the photographs, the model’s head appears separated from the body; often the sitter holds it in their own hands. Although this genre is called headless portraiture, it is the head that is always present in the photograph, and the body may be absent. (Wikipedia)

Nowadays, of course, photo editing programmes make this easier for us to do than it was for the Victorians. Create a headless portrait of you, of one of your loved ones, or of your nemesis, and share it with us.
