photo as portrait (the unselfie)

at this early stage photography is the non-selfie. photography means to capture the world.

for example: paul nadar: (below, photo of sarah bernhardt, sort of poster girl of the mid 1800's). nadar was born in 1820 in paris. he was a caricaturist for Le Charivari in 1848. then he created the Revue comique and the Petit journal pour rire

he took his first photographs from 1853 on.
