Antonio Zeno Shindler (1823-1899) was a photographer and artist for the Smithsonian Institution. The image, c. 1867, was taken at his Washington, Studio. In 1867, he moved with his family and his brother-in-law's family to Washington, DC. In Washington, he took ownership of the Addis Photographic Gallery, where he worked under the name "Shindler and Company" with his brother-in-law. He was commissioned by English philanthropist William Henry Blackmore and the Smithsonian to make copies of Blackmore's collection of photographs, create a catalog for their exhibition, and photograph delegations of American Indians visiting Washington.
