Julia Margaret Cameron Summary

Julia Margaret Cameron by Joanne Lukitsh

Julia Margaret Cameron (1815-79) was almost fifty - and practically self-taught - when she took up photography seriously, yet she produced some of the most innovative and visually striking portraits of her time. Her novel use of lighting and focus transformed portraiture and helped secure the acceptance of photography as an expressive art. An introductory monograph on one of the most important women photographers of all time, with 55 chronologically sequenced pictures.
