EDITORS COMMENTS
This photograph captures the enigmatic Frances Benjamin Johnston, a trailblazing American photographer from the late 19th century. In this self-portrait taken around 1890, Johnston boldly defies societal norms by dressing as a man and posing confidently with a bicycle. With her hair slicked back and adorned in masculine attire, including a dapper suit and hat, Johnston challenges traditional gender roles of the era. Her piercing gaze meets the viewer's eye with an air of defiance, showcasing her determination to break free from societal constraints. The sepia-toned image adds an element of nostalgia to this powerful portrayal of individuality and self-expression. The carefully composed composition highlights both Johnston's striking presence as well as the intricate details of her surroundings - an elegant interior that serves as a backdrop for her audacious act. Frances Benjamin Johnston was not only known for pushing boundaries through her own personal style but also for capturing diverse subjects throughout her prolific career. This photograph is just one example of how she fearlessly explored different facets of identity and challenged conventional notions through artistry. Preserved by Granger Art on Demand, this remarkable print allows us to reflect upon Johnston's enduring legacy as an influential figure in American photography while celebrating her unwavering spirit captured within this timeless image.
