Footnotes

  • A variant composition of this image appears as plate 40 in John Hannavy's Roger Fenton of Crimble Hall (1975), p.180. In the caption for the plate Hannavy states: "We have alternative compositions for most of Fenton's studies involving people...It would be interesting to know how many attempts he made to get this very precise composition right - or was this his first and only attempt?" The print presented here, an atypical subject for Fenton, would suggest that several attempts at the photograph were made.
