E.H. Mills (1874-1942), Photographer

Ernest Herbert ('E.H.') Mills

Artist associated with 51 portraits
As a photographer based in Hampstead, London, Ernest Herbert Mills specialised in working on location as an 'at home photographer'. Working for W.T. Stead, he photographed Cecil Rhodes, General Botha and Andrew Carnegie as well as taking a celebrated series of Royal Academicians in their studios in 1902. Mills described himself as an 'artist-entertainer' and produced theatre posters, cartoons and caricatures of subjects that he also photographed. In the 1930s he moved to Worthing, where he drew cartoons and painted as well as constructing toy theatres and making cartoon films.
