This picture is “Native Converts to Christianity” by William Johnson taken in the 1850s or 1860s. This picture depicts four women, in a garden, seemingly discussing something in their religious garbs. It is important to note that this picture is clearly staged, as all four women are turned towards the camera with the picture able to capture the entire group. The photographer was obviously attempting to send a message to the viewer. All of the women’s heads are adorned with cloth, and their heads are tilted slightly downwards. On top of this, two women are sitting with the other two leaning against a hedge, showing a relaxed posture. Perhaps, this photographer wanted to demonstrate the oppression of women during this time period, based on their gestures, with their relaxed postures demonstrating the norm this oppression was. These women are composed and comfortable in their oppression, not knowing anything different in their lives.
