  • Catalogue Essay

    Few photographers of the 19th century created as rich an oeuvre as Julia Margaret Cameron, or had as lasting an impact on the photography to come. Cameron pushed past the conventions of portraiture to create images referencing literature, history, and art. While aligned with Pre-Raphaelite painting, Cameron’s work is emphatically photographic, filled with detail and definition. The photograph offered here is of Annie Chinery, a favorite model of Cameron’s, who married her son Ewen in 1869, the year this portrait was made. Cameron’s inscription “for her dear Charlotte” likely refers to Charlotte Norman, another young woman within Cameron’s large circle of friends and family.
