Description

This portrait is the earliest photograph in the exhibition. Although the sitter was never pleased with it, thinking it made her look too stern, for Reed it held all the promise of the medium he was just starting to understand. He knew the sitter, but still found that the photograph offered discoveries about her. It remains one of his personal favorites to this day.
