Portrait of Lewis Carroll at age 23. While best known for writing Alice in Wonderland, Lewis held numerous roles including author, photographer, illustrator, poet, mathematician and teacher. While not a self-portrait by today's standards, this is considered a self portrait of himself which first appeared in the 1898 biography 'The Life and Letters of Lewis Carroll'.
