Photograph by Rosalind Maingot (1894-1947). Australian-born Maingot studied photography at the London School of Photography after marrying a surgeon and settling in London but her previous career as an actress is apparent in her photography which encompasses costume and nude figure studies, still lifes and flowers. She also became an accomplished medical photographer, working with her husband and was instrumental in setting up the RPS Medical Group.
