Self-portraits of Ingeborg Enander aged 29 (1909) and 69 (1949), Sweden. She was a photographer.

In her youth, photography was one of the few professions where a woman could earn money. Common female jobs like nurse and teacher were often unpaid. Other jobs were often passed down from father to son, so along with the new technology of photography came new opportunities for women.

Kirsch, 1974.
