Photo of a man with breastplate, and two women
Original title '1. Man with breastplate and spear, two women, one old and one young by bark shelter.'
Lindt took at least sixty photographs in this series of studio portaits of Clarence River Aborigines, although extant albums usually contain fewer than a dozen each. When first published, these studio tableaux were regarded as accurate. Reference: An Eye for Photography: the camera in Australia / Alan Davies. Carlton, Vic : Melbourne University Press, 2004, p.60.
