Oh hellooo… I am just back from a jaunt to Maine, where there is a lovely Julia Margaret Cameron exhibit at the Portland Museum of Art. JMC was the grand dame of Victorian photography, beginning her career at age 48. Also- little known fact- she was the great aunt of Virginia Woolf. Lord knows this woman had to use some sort of a tripod device to get her subjects still during long exposures. She used the collodion wet plate process, and photographed her many famous and influential friends at her home on the Isle of Wight. Take a look.
