Born into a prosperous family of Amsterdam lawyers, Asser pursued not only a legal career, but was also an amateur painter and pioneering photographer. He portrayed his friends and family, including his second daughter, Charlotte. This is one of the earliest surviving Dutch photographs. It was made c. 1842, not long after Asser had begun to experiment with the medium.
