1. Gertrude Käsebier: Evelyn Nesbit, 1902

    In all its simplicity, this photo of a young Evelyn Nesbit shows Käsebier’s quality as a portraitist: it’s both dreamy and direct, posed and natural. It seems to contain the essence of adolescence: Evelyn looks at ease, aware of her beauty, while the road ahead of her is still unknown. She has the irresistible combination which puts fear into a mother’s heart and makes men lose their heads: she’s sexy and innocent at the same time. In Evelyn’s case, sadly, this would indeed prove to have fatal consequences when her husband shot a well-known architect and former lover in a jealous rage.
