Moffett Studio
Time Period: 1905-present
Location: 57 East Congress Street, Chicago
“George Moffett and his colleague George O. Hinchliffe shared a penchant for shooting whole figure or half-length portraits done in relatively sharp focus, often in elaborate studio settings. When he produced head shots for theatrical publicity, they were often strong profiles. Images he produced personally were signed in bold red characters. Photographs were signed in the negative with a copyright symbol and MOFFETT STUDIO in sans serif unicals.”
