PRETTYCHICAGO_0002A pretty woman poses for her portrait at the S. Adamkiewicz Art Studio in Chicago, Illinois. It appears that Mr Adamkiewicz was in a bit of a hurry when he took this photograph and also when he decided to publish it. The photograph is adversely affected by two factors. The posing position chosen by the photographer, and the unevenness which the bottom of the woman’s blouse sticks out of her skirt, causes the subject to give an appearance of sitting unevenly in her chair. In addition, one of her shoes is peaking out from under the cover of her skirt. I don’t imagine any gold medals would have been awarded to Mr Adamkiewicz for this image. The Chicago Polish Directory (1903) lists Stanley Adamkiewicz as a photographer operating in Chicago at a studio located t the same address listed on the bottom of this photograph.
