Daguerreotype, 1/6 plate 
Private collection of Laddy Kite 
 
LL/98167 
  
(Laddy Kite, 28 March 2020) This scrubbed, combed and polished young lad stands in a stark and barren room, missing even the simplest of visual amenities. Immersed in a pool of light, the sense of space and depth is quite pronounced, while the fading illumination serves to dramatically project him to the front of the image. Judging by his lavish dress and pantaloons, he must have come from a family of means. The plate is housed in a push-button, Boston style case with a domed or convex cover glass.
