Julia Margaret Cameron (1815-–79) was one of the most important and innovative photographers of the 19th century. Criticized in her lifetime for her unconventional techniques, she is now celebrated as a pioneering portraitist. 2015 marks the bicentenary of Cameron’s birth and the 150th anniversary of her first museum exhibition – the only one in her lifetime – held at the Victoria and Albert Museum in 1865. Drawing on the VetA’s significant collection, which includes photographs acquired directly from Cameron and letters she wrote to the museum’s founding director, Curator Marta Weiss tells the story of Cameron’s artistic development. She also presents, for the first time, a group of photographs recently revealed to have belonged to Cameron’s friend and mentor the artist G.F. Watts. This discovery sheds light on previously unacknowledged aspects of Cameron’s experimental approach.

Apie autorių (2015)

Julia Margaret Cameron, 1815 - 1879 Photographer Julia Margaret Cameron was born in Calcutta in 1815 to a wealthy British family. She was educated in France and England and, in 1824; she married the jurist Charles Hay Cameron. They settled in Sri Lanka where he worked on the legal code of the country and acquired several coffee plantations. In 1848, the Camerons returned to England. At the age of 48, Cameron received a camera as a gift from her two daughters and embraced photography. She had her garden greenhouse converted to a darkroom and studio. Her first photograph produced was entitled Annie, My First Success in 1864. She then did a series of portraits of great men of her day that included Alfred, Lord Tennyson; Charles Darwin; Henry Wadsworth Longfellow; Robert Browning and Sir John Herschel. Cameron pioneered several techniques designed to heighten the expressive possibilities of the portrait, which included soft focus and carefully blurred images, the narrow close-up, and harsh lighting. Her costume pieces illustrated religious, literary, poetic and mythological themes. She produced many studio tableaux and book illustrations Cameron returned to Sri Lanka in 1875 and, with the exception of a few photographs, gave up photography. In 1879, Julia Margaret Cameron died.
