    Lindt took at least sixty photographs in this series of studio portaits of Clarence River Aborigines, although extant albums usually contain fewer than a dozen each. When first published, these studio tableaux were regarded as accurate. Reference: An Eye for Photography: the camera in Australia / Alan Davies. Carlton, Vic : Melbourne University Press, 2004, p.60.
