Publisher's Summary

From Life tells the story of the greatest portrait photographer of the Victorian age, Julia Margaret Cameron. Born in Calcutta in 1815, she married and settled down to the life of a typical Victorian colonial matron; but, beneath this conventional exterior, she was increasingly interested in photography. After moving to England, Cameron acquired her first camera in 1863, ultimately emerging as the leading portrait photographer of the Victorian art world. Her great-niece Virginia Woolf wrote about her distinguished photographs of "Famous Men and Fair Women," including Tennyson, Carlyle, Herschel, Darwin, and Woolf's mother Julia Stephen. This is a fascinating and meticulously researched biography of a remarkable female artist who was decades ahead of her time.
