THIN WAISTED YOUNG WOMAN IN A CHECKERED DRESS (PORTRAIT BY FEMALE PHOTOGRAPHER)

KEPLER_0006

A young woman in a pretty checkered dress is the subject of this cabinet card portrait by the Kepler studio in Central City, Colorado. The woman leans on a wicker chair in an unconvincing thoughtful pose. Note the young lady’s unusual hair ornament. Something else unusual about this cabinet card is that the photograph was taken by a female photographer. The pioneer woman photographer was named Mrs. V. M. Kepler. The “Checklist of Western Photographers (1986) reports that Kepler was a photographer in Central City between 1896 and 1899.

  1. She’s lovely. So fragile. – These kinds of thoughtful portraits make one wonder what the calm, thoughtful poser had on their mind. Thanks!
