Description

Albumen print. Photographic portrait by Lewis Carroll of two of his five maternal aunts. Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, better known by his pseudonym Lewis Carroll, was the author of 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland' (1865). He was one of a very small number of mainly British amateur photographers who excelled during the early years of photography. He began taking photographs in 1856 and went on to produce far less stilted portraits, especially of children, than were usual at the time.
