Note: "pnotographer unknown" means, the person who took the picture
is curently unknown to me. But I'll continue my research and will add lacking
credits to this post, as soon as I find them. If you know any of the missing
sources, please don't hesitate to let me know.

  3. It's really fascinating to see the different variations on the same subject here: who included their camera, who used a mirror, what objects or scenery were included, their clothing (or lack of), whether they're staring back at the viewer or elsewhere, etc.
