Notes
  • 84 x 114 mm. Woodburytype. A view showing an aged woman with her arm round a young girl. The portrait is in Thomson's 'Through Cyprus with the camera, in the autumn of 1878' (vol.1, London: Sampson Low, Marston, Searle, and Rivington, 1879). Thomson's comments give an instructive insight into the difficulties of photography with bulky equipment and long exposures: 'Any attempts to photograph the fleeting expression of sentiment in the human face is almost certain to fail; nevertheless, a chance shot with the camera secured for us the accompanying pleasing picture - one which conveys something of the feelings that crossed the mind of the aged dame as she caressed the pretty little Greek girl who stands by her side' (vol.1, p.18).
