Series I: Self Portraits

Scope and Contents note

Series I includes two self-portraits that Chapman gave to the Historical Society in 1953. They are arranged in chronological order. The first was taken in 1913 in Chapman's workshop on Bank Street in Greenwich Village. It shows Chapman as a young man working with photographic equipment. The second, taken in 1953, shows a much older Chapman standing in the swamp of a nature preserve in the Palisades, once again posed with camera equipment. Both portraits clearly show his deep interest in photography.
