Julia Margaret Cameron (1815-1879) is one of the most important figures in the history of photography. Presented with a camera as a gift from her daughter, at the age of 48, she embraced photography with a passion bordering on obsession. Her subject matter consisted exclusively of portraits and fancy-dress tableaux. This exhibition brings together over 100 of Cameron's greatest images and will coincide with the publication by the J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles of the first complete catalogue raisonné of her work. This exhibition is organised by the National Portrait Gallery, London, in collaboration with the National Museum of Photography, Film and Television, Bradford.
