For this new collection I think I have surpassed myself in finding some very striking images from the 1880's to early 1900's. As photography progressed, the time the subject had to stand still without blinking, gradually decreased from around 23 seconds to only a few. Also distortions of the image seem to be happening less, and people started to take outdoor shots, as well as more naturally posed studio photos. I particularly love the one with the pet owls, which is ahead of its time.
