“0232,” a photograph from Linda Fregni Nagler’s series The Hidden Mother, which was featured in the Readings section of our August 2013 issue. All 997 daguerreotypes, tintypes, and albumen prints that comprise the series are currently on view in an exhibition curated by Cindy Sherman inside Il Palazzo Enciclopedico (The Encyclopedic Palace) at the Venice Biennale. Because of the long exposure times required by early photography, children posing for portraits were often held still by adults hidden under blankets.
