Description

Young women resting after having packed their produce into the barrels of salt visible behind them. One of the women appears to have bandaged fingers. Photographer Frank Meadow Sutcliffe (1853-1941) is best known for his turn-of-the-century portrayals of small sea-town fisherfolk and farmers. Although the photographic technology of the time dictated that his portraits had to be staged, he still managed to breathe an air of spontaneity into his work.
