Funeral Notice for an Unknown Man
Stephanie Forsyth
vintage photo

The Cabinet Photograph
Thousands of anonymous Studio Photographs taken in the 19th Century, (at considerable cost in a fashionable photographic studio), the sitter earnestly posing, all joy and character removed in the static pose, the Photograph banished to the back of the Display Cabinet in the Drawing Room or proudly displayed on the mantelpiece.
What is his history?

Stephanie Forsyth lives in Putney, New South Wales, Australia.
