Robert Cornelius, the original daguerreotype boyfriend. 

meandthemajor:

1839 self-portrait of Robert Cornelius, one of the first photographs of a human to be produced.

[I don’t know how to explain this for an image description. It’s a very old, degraded photograph of a man from the 1830s with a high-collared coat and windswept hair and a blob that might be a neckerchief or maybe just the ravages of time and he is going to brood the SHIT out of your moors.]
