albumen print, h 102mm × w 159mm More details

This is a selfie from 1888. The photographer (right) lies on the ground and holds a cable release. He and his family members are clearly enjoying themselves. They look relaxed and not as stiff and posed as was usual in portraits around this time. An important aspect of amateur photography is that it enabled engaging so closely with personal life.
