Seeley by Coburn

George Seeley, 1905
By Coburn

Having never seen a picture of Seeley before I was immediately taken with this portrait of him by Coburn. Like an affirmation of some sort for me, hard to explain but I suppose it lies in the fact that his photographs which I truly love are rendered all the more powerful- his face seems to just enhance the work...all the mystery and strength of character he gives to the viewpoint of Coburn's camera.
