Young man in bathing suit

Young man in bathing suit

A carte-de-visite portrait of a young man in a bathing costume, sitting on some fake rocks against a backdrop depicting a seascape. In his right hand he's holding a straw beach hat topped off with a small bunch of fabric flowers on its brim, while his left hand is holding a cigarette.

Presumably the sitter entered the photographer's studio in his street clothes and used the dressing room there to change into his bathing suit to have his portrait taken.

Photographed by P. Frois of Biarritz.
