Self-Portrait by Nadar (c. 1855)

The photograph titled “Self-Portrait” was taken by the artist Nadar around the year 1855. In this black and white photograph, it appears to be a posed portrait of the artist himself. Nadar is shown with a pensive expression, his chin resting on his hand, eyes gazing off to the side, which invites a sense of introspection. His hair is tousled, and he sports a full beard, which represents the style of that era. He wears a dark jacket with a wide, turned-down collar and a white shirt, which stand out against the lighter background. The photograph exhibits soft focus and rich textures that are characteristic of early photography techniques.
