actual image size: 32cm x 32cm


Photograph by Julia Margaret Cameron (1815-1879) of the British actress Ellen Terry (1848–1928). Cameron's photographic portraits are considered among the finest in the early history of photography. She set up a private studio at her Isle of Wight home at the age of 48, after her daughter gave her a camera, and she became expert at using the collodion wet-plate process. She used friends, servants and neighbours as subjects, including the scientists John Herschel and Charles Darwin, and the poet Alfred Lord Tennyson.
