Question from A Reader: Early Portrait Photographs


A reader asks why, from the beginning of the 1900s, he has difficulty figuring out what the people portrayed in photographs looked like in actual reality, and if it is something with him, the reader, who is kind of an odd person but rather kind and obliging . It is something with him, but in a good way. But I can understand why the confusion is tremendous. In relatively old days, the person portrayed was filled with hips and shaken lightly. Which explains the slightly surprised expressions that often appear on these early photos. There were also more rocket launches at the time. They exploded. It caused the photographer’s retina to fuse with the lens so that the person portrayed actually died for a moment. Therefore, there was also much more toys in the anteroom at the time.
