Tre flickor på rad, klädda i likadana folkdräkter. Olika åldrar

Gösta Florman (1831 - 1900) worked as a photographer with his own studio in addition to his military career. In 1871 he left the military and acted as a portrait photographer in Stockholm.

Floman's portraits were characterized by the continental, fashionable style of brown-tinted photographs, purposefully deployed props and elegantly dressed models.
