In the past, I have posted photos attributed to "Circle of Eakins," and this is the first of three in today's set. There are various versions of just who took these. The most common is that the students did it under Eakins' supervision, but some think they did it all on their own, and others say Eakins himself was the photographer. My own theory is that it was some combination of all of the above. A common element is that for some reason the prints handed down are dark. I lightened this one.
