Morris Burke Parkinson (born: July, 1847-1926?) worked for many years as a portrait photographer in New York City before moving to Boston in the very early part of the 20th century, where he maintained a portrait studio at 423 Boyleston street. He is perhaps best known for the two allegorical and widely reproduced photographs of four-year-old child model Josephine Anderson, depicted as Cupid Awake and Cupid Asleep.
