    Re: New Book: Eleventyone Portraits 1841 to 1950

    I received my copy of the book two days ago. It is a beautiful book with plenty labor of love. It reminds me of Ansel Adams book Examples.

    Having read through three pictures so far and I have the feeling of being transported into the early days of photography through the author's eyes. What a pair of eyes: cool, observant and not a tiny bit of details of the image escapes his description. Of course here and there, he shows us things we don't normally see as I think he uses his imaginations a little bit. That's inevitable because he loves these images.

    I feel so lucky to have ordered this book and I surely will learn quite a lot about photography from its historical and technical aspects. Especially portrait photography.

    If you want to get one book in 2020, order this book.

    Here is another of my portraits in the book. This is of a man photographed by Gertrude Käsebier. Gertrude Käsebier is better known for her family and woman centric compositions but she was also a comercial photographer and in regard to this she did a series of "men of worth" for a magasine series.
