Photographed the performers freaks that traveled with circuses and performed with sideshows in the New York area in the 19th century.
 
Syracuse University Library houses The Ronald G. Becker Collection of Charles Eisenmann Photographs which includes over 1000 of his works and they describe the content as:
 
His subjects came from many countries and covered the entire spectrum of human oddity: giants and midgets, fat ladies and human skeletons, snake charmers and wild men, ladies bearded and tattooed, and a menagerie of turtle boys, dog boys, lobster boys, lion boys and more. Notable figures who sat for his portraits include Myrtle Corbin (four-legged lady), Jo Jo the dog-faced boy, Admiral Dot (midget), Zip the Pinhead, and P.T. Barnum himself.
