Embedded text or transcriptPhotography in our fathers' days
Now quite still please!
Nowadays
We want something absolutely natural so you just sit at your desk as you would, and don't heed me!
That's just a little too natural! I want the head up, and turned a little to the left
Keep your eyes on the desk - your left hand on your knee
Allow me!
After all!
Now quite still please!
Person DepictedHaselden; William Kerridge (1872-1953)
NotesPencil notes on top margin read: It used to be frankly stiff - now the photographer makes a great pretence of naturalness, but he doesn't really intend to depart for the old custom of the rigid attitude and fixed stare
