This photograph was taken while he was employed by Onnes (or Ohannes) Kurkdjian (1851-c.1903), an Armenian photographer who moved to the port town of Surabaya on the island of Java, Dutch East Indies (now Indonesia). Kurkdjian's photographic "atelier" studio boasted more than thirty photographers and darkroom assistants, producing photographs that are now highly prized for their topographical and anthropological content.
