One of Australia's pre‐eminent 19th‐century photographers, Lindt is best known for his quietly theatrical and melancholic studio portraits of Aboriginal people. Born in Frankfurt am Main, Germany, he left at age 17, travelling by ship and arrived in Australia circa 1862. He joined the photographic firm Wagner which specialized in Aboriginal scenes and studio settings. In 1876 Lindt set up his own studio in Melbourne, Victoria. His ethnographic studies of indigenous people of the region are among the most important produced in the 19th century. – Some with slight fading/discoloration, some with buckling from mounting, some surface scratch/scuff marks, otherwise in good condition.
