Unfortunately this Anne Lang negative is suffering a bit from “silvering” which makes it a bit cloudy, but you can still appreciate her skills in portraiture. Nothing is accidental. Look at the objects on the desk, the way she uses light from the window to highlight the musician’s face. I can imagine her meticulously arranging everything in the room for hours before putting a plate in her camera and exposing it.

I wonder how long he had to hold that pose. Great photo, absolutely nothing great about the old days of photography.
