Fading Away[1] is an 1858 photograph by Henry Peach Robinson, a composite picture of five negatives, in which he depicts a girl dying of consumption (which we know as tuberculosis), and the despair of the other members of the family. One critic said that Robinson had exploited "the most painful sentiments which it is the lot of human beings to experience."
