Little is known about this gifted photographer who produced photographic studies of the landscape and rural motifs during the 1860s and 1870s. This image depicts a lovely wooded landscape scene flooded with sparkling sunlight and rich shadows. Of all the landscape photographers active in the 1870s, Famin produced the closest equivalent of impressionism in his work.
