I happen to came across below stated sentence in an English preposition book.

"This photo is her with her best friend."

I assume, that grammatically correct sentence should be:

"This photo is of her with her best friend."

To me here of means: "indicating an association between two entities, typically one of belonging, in which the first is the head of the phrase and the second is something associated with it.

I am not native English speaker. Is it something to do with AmE and BrE? or I lack understanding of sentence structure :(

The two sentences have the same meaning. I agree that adding "of" is more grammatical, but sometimes people omit it.


This photo is her with her best friend.

"this photo" can be understood as "the content of this photo".
