Woman from Rockland, Maine

Click here to view it larger.

What it is:

Photo (approx. 4 x 6 inches) inserted into a cardboard frame/folder (I have cropped most of the folder from the scan).

What I know about it:

Photographer is Rockland Photo Studio of Rockland, Maine.  Otherwise undated and unidentified.


Everything about this photo, her face and body, her hair, her dress, her expression, the lighting, etc., has such a gentle softness to it without falling into fuzziness or blurriness.  I think it’s quite pretty.

  1. Hi Matt
    I think it looks more like a painting than a photo. It really is lovely!

    • Thanks, Katherine! I agree, her dress in particular. I had to look at the enlargement to make sure it was some filmy fabric and not a painting.

  2. Soft and pretty – she looks like the grandmother on whose lap all the grandchildren want to cuddle.

    • Agreed! And if you’re a good child, she might even let you crawl into her lap while she’s wearing her nice dress rather than waiting until she’s less formal.
