What is the belief of freezing a picture of someone?
You supposedly capture a piece of a person's soul at that moment in time if you take their picture. They are frozen IN TIME, for eternity, not literally frozen. Freezing a picture keeps it from deteriorating as quickly.

It's like cryogenics, in case they find a cure for ugly.
