Phylipp Dilloway Photograph

This is a self portrait taken by Phylipp Dilloway onboard the USS American Pilot (also known as the Empire State I), taken in the summer of 1945. Dilloway set a camera on a timer to take the photograph, thus he is both the subject and the photographer. The bracelet on his wrist is an seamanship knot known as a three stranded Turk's head, made out of white cotton whipping line, which old sailors would wear as an adornment.
