About This Image
A photographer in pith helmet stands at his camera, which is mounted on a tripod beneath a blackcloth. Village life (most likely that of a location in Southeast Asia) unfolds before him: cows (so thin their ribs show), a cart, local residents. Another photographer, probably a woman, crouches on the ground nearby, busily at some sort of work. A man holds a dark, Western-style umbrella over her head. The day must be hot. A true, British Colonial-Era image.
Note: detail images appear to have a very sepia cast - this is misleading - the tones are standard albumen tones as seen in the full view image. Print in good condition.
