Lewis Carroll (1832-1898), Photographer and author of 'Alice in Wonderland'

Lewis Carroll (Charles Lutwidge Dodgson)

Sitter in 9 portraits
Artist associated with 59 portraits
Dodgson created his famous pen name from his own: the Latin for 'Charles' is 'Carolus', thus 'Carroll'; 'Lutwidge' (Dodgson's mother's maiden name) = 'Lugwig', the German for 'Lewis'. Dodgson became an undergraduate of Christ Church, Oxford, in 1851 and, when he took up photography in 1856, was a Student (Fellow) and Mathematics Lecturer of the college. He published many pamphlets on academic affairs, as well as on mathematics, and, despite his stammer, occasionally preached in church. Dodgson remained at Christ Church throughout his life and it was there that he wrote Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (1865) and Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There (1871).
