ca. 1900, [albumen portrait of Cherry Kearton standing on his brother Richard’s shoulders to take a picture of a bird’s nest]



The brothers were pioneers of wildlife photography, and in 1892, took the first ever photograph of a bird’s nest with eggs. In 1899 they published “With Nature and a Camera”, illustrated with 160 photographs. Richard went on to develop the ‘photographic hide’ after a series of experiments, one of which involved hiding in a stuffed ox in order to obtain better pictures.
