Image of Feyen: man posing with umbrella, Paris ca. 1860

Jacques Eugène Feyen (1815-1908) made this unique portrait of a young man posing with a dark umbrella. It's rare to see items like this one in early photographs. This umbrella is used as a beautiful part of a funny composition.

Feyen started his photographic activities in 1851 and stopped them in 1866. Rue de la Paix in Paris was his last address.
