Portrait of a lady, by Nestor Heck (Iași)

Portrait of a lady, by Nestor Heck (Iași)
albumen print on cardboard, carte de visite
Nestor Heck, Jassy (Iași), c. 1880 (t.a.q. 1883)

An anonymous young lady poses with a photographic album in the studio of Nestor Heck, the most important photographer of Iași in the second half of the 19th century. At some point of its history, the photo didn`t enjoy the luxury of being properly housed in an album: it seems to have been crudely pinned up on some rigid surface (but this doesn`t make her a pin-up girl, hopefully).

The photograph was taken sometime in the late 1870s or early 1880s; by 1883, the address of Heck's studio seems to have changed from "Grand rue" (Strada Mare) to Lăpușneanu Street (see discussions on the Flickr page).
