Photo of a man standing with his body painted
Original title '12. Bearded man with fur headdress and cloth, standing, full length.'
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.
