Catalogue Note

This assisted self-portrait (IN 2285), taken in his Christ Church Studio, shows Dodgson seated in an armchair, facing right, with his head resting on his left hand. Taylor and Wakeling state that he took this photograph probably to check that his camera was still working after being stored during the winter months of 1874-75.
