Man from Lisbon...
I find this photo very strange…

The man looks like he was caught by the camera closing his eyes which is normal now a days, but in that time the exposure was too long to capture him with closed eyes isn’t that right?
Sometimes i think it is a post mortem photograph but that wasn’t very common in Portugal.
Does anyone has a good clue?

    I agree he has strange eyes.

    It doesn't look like a PM.

    possibly blind. not unusual for the blind to have portraits made. later in the 1900s photos were combined with pleas for sympathy or patronage.
