A large camera takes our picture.

Lot 0031
A large camera takes our picture. Of all the cabinet cards in this sale showing the photographer with his camera, this is the only one that has the camera pointing straight out. It is as though we are the subject, looking at what a subject would see. This is probably a mirror image, rather than one taken by another camera. The photographer is both the maker of the image as well as its subject. We are both the person looking at the cabinet card and the implied person being photographed. This wonderful cabinet card is by Weston and Gilbert, “traveling photographers,” based in Des Moines, Iowa. Often the work of traveling photographers is crude, but this has great sophistication. Clean, slightly light
