What I know about it:

Photographer is Hammond & Co. of Bath, Maine.  Otherwise undated and unidentified.


While I have plenty of other portraits of people making eye contact with the camera, this one has always seemed unusually bold and direct.

  1. Very handsome young man. What a kind face he has. I wonder what he was like and how his life unfolded…

    • Thanks, glad you like it. I have another that I think might be the same kid, but younger. I have no idea how his life unfolded, but it’s natural to wonder. Interesting to think he has a kind face. To me he looks handsome, but a little cocky. But it’s opinion, so nobody’s wrong. 🙂

  2. He should have sued his barber.

  3. You are right, such a piercing gaze – almost hypnotic!

  4. That gaze is actually kind of frightening.

  5. I think he looks to have fazed out. He looks as though he is meditating.
