Description
Summary:"Julia Margaret Cameron created astounding photographs, both in quality and subject, photographs that "startle the eye with wonder and delight," observed the Pre-Raphaelite painter George Frederic Watts." "A Victorian wife and mother, Cameron began to practice the art of photography late in life. From her "first success," a haunting study of the nine-year-old Annie Philpot in the early 1860s, she went on to create searching portraits of the most eminent figures of the Victorian age, including Sir John Herschel, Alfred Lord Tennyson, Charles Darwin, Anne Thackeray Ritchie, and Ellen Terry." "Cameron's transition from enthusiastic novice to accomplished artist is revealed in this sensitive study of the woman behind the camera. Colin Ford's unique appraisal of her life and work firmly establishes Julia Margaret Cameron as one of the greatest photographers of all time."--Jacket.
