Part of Maynard family collection
Series consists of 41 photographs produced by Hannah Maynard of Mrs. R. Maynard’s Photographic Gallery between 1880 and 1899. Images were examples of Maynard's advanced technical photographic skill in producing experimental works such as photocollages, composites, cut-and-paste montages, photosculptures (referred to by Maynard as “living statuaries” or “statuary from life”) and double- or multiple-exposure portraits. Photographs were produced as commercial products and to promote Maynard's photographic portfolio. Some of the composite photographs feature landscape views attributed to Richard Maynard.
