Julia Margaret Cameron's (1815-1879) 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 proces. She used friends, servants and neighbours as subjects. Cameron moved to Kalutara in Ceylon (now Sri Lanka) in 1875, and died there in 1879. Albumen print.
