"Howard Carter Looking through the Open Doors of Tutankhamun’s Second Shrine, January 1924" kirbyfood:SOURCE

Here is my favorite bit of information on that site: “Like a Hollywood film still, Burton’s photograph of Carter is carefully constructed to tantalize the viewer.  The photographer’s flood lamp is positioned so that Carter seems illuminated—almost dumbstruck—by the glow of treasures that lie within, as he alone sees what is still hidden from our view. In reality, Carter saw the closed doors of the third shrine, less than a foot beyond the open door of the second shrine.”
