Shaded Park Path

Shaded Park Path

A landscape study with emphasis on shadows and highlights with the focal point being a dirt pathway leading from the lower image margin’s foreground to a highlighted area in the background is seen in this photograph. Possibly taken in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park, as many known examples from this location were done by this Unknown Brooklyn amateur photographer whose surviving work was discovered in a trunk in the American South, this preliminary cyanotype study was eventually reworked and printed as a deep-brown carbon print, which can be seen at link below.
