[TASMANIA] On Brown’s River: Samuel Clifford’s camera
CLIFFORD, Samuel (1827-1890)
Stereoscopic albumen print photograph, early 1860s. Each image 80 x 80 mm. Printed label verso: Views in Tasmania. Bush Scenery. S. Clifford, Photographer, Hobart Town. Inscribed in ink in period hand verso: On Brown’s River. Samuel Clifford’s camera can clearly be seen to the right of the waterfall.
As Kerry Williams has pointed out ( http://thomasnevin.wordpress.com/2012/05/06/samuel-clifford-thomas-nevin-and-two-cameras/ ) this image should possibly have a double attribution, as Thomas Nevin is known to have accompanied Clifford on photographic excursions and perhaps it was Nevin who photographed Clifford's camera. However, this begs the question: if Nevin (or another photographer) photographed Clifford's camera, why did he not also photograph Clifford standing next to it?
