Photographs by Eveleen Myers, 1880s-1910s

Eveleen Myers (1856-1937) began her photographic career in 1888 in order to record the early lives of her three children Leo, Silvia and Harold. She was inspired to take up photography from memories of a visit to Julia Margaret Cameron. Myers experimented with Cameron’s Pre-Raphaelite style and she specialised in studies of children, genre scenes and portraits of eminent contemporaries such as Gladstone, Browning, Maria Spartali Stillman and her own sister, Dorothy Tennant, the artist, and the explorer, Henry Morton Stanley.
