Description

A photograph of a young boy and an old donkey, taken in about 1890, by Colonel Joseph Gale (c 1835-1906). Both boy and donkey seem tired. Although posed, the mud and straw in the yard and on the donkey's feet give the picture a feeling of reality. Joseph Gale specialised in naturalistic photographs of rural life and figures in landscapes. He was one of the first members of the Linked Ring Brotherhood and was also a member of the Royal Photographic Society.
