Julia Margaret Cameron (1815-79) was almost fifty when she took up photography seriously, yet she produced some of the most innovative and visually striking portraits of the time. Her novel use of lighting and focus transformed portraiture and helped secure the acceptance of photography as an expressive art.

Other artists in this series include: Eugene Atget, Mathew Brady, Wynn Bullock, Joan Fontcuberta, David Goldblatt, Nan Goldin, Graciela Iturbide, Andre Kertesz, Dorothea Lange, Mary Ellen Mark, Joel Meyerowitz, Boris Mikhailov, Lisette Model, Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, Eadweard Muybridge, Eugene Richards, W. Eugene Smith, Shomei Tomatsu, Joel-Peter Witkin

About the Author:

Joanne Lukitsh is a professor of Art History at the Massachusetts College of Art in Boston. She has written and lectured extensively on Julia Margaret Cameron, and has also written on American photography, including work on Alfred Stieglitz's early photographs. Professor Lukitsh has been awarded grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities, the American Council of Learned Societies, and the Paul Mellon Centre for the Study of British Art.

From Library Journal:

Written and compiled by Lukitsh (art history, Massachusetts Coll. of Art, Boston; Julia Margaret Cameron: Her Work and Career), this small-format book on 19th-century photographer Cameron (1815-79) features high-quality reproductions with detailed captions. The text is succinct and engaging, revealing how Cameron produced the main body of her work, beginning with a description of the difficult glass-plate negative process. Most of her images are portraits or tableaux vivants based on Bible or literary characters, and her style is remarkable for its imaginative use of natural light and focus. Lukitsh also describes Cameron's social and artistic circle, which included painter George Watts, Thomas Carlyle, Dante and Christina Rossetti, and Charles Darwin. While the book would have benefited from a short bibliography, it does provide a chronology of Cameron's life and work. The "Phaidon 55" series features dozens of photographers and photojournalists ranging in style from traditional to innovative whose work is presented in simply designed and attractive little books that are very affordable. Larger public and academic libraries should consider acquiring the entire series each year for photographic and fine arts collections.
