Gertrude Käsebier's The Manger

Photo Details

Gertrude Käsebier's photo titled "The Manger" taken in 1901.

At this time, photography was only a few decades old and was an art form. (And it still is.) This was an experiment in photographing white on white. I think that it's quite extraordinary.

The subjects aren't identified.
