For My Best Beloved Sister Mia : An Album of Photographs
By Julia Margaret Cameron October 23, 2010 – January 2, 2011
Don’t miss this rare chance to view the work of this pioneering female photographer and the curious characters she and her contemporaries captured on film. Cameron’s images of family, friends, and neighbors are a unique glimpse at Victorian life, posed and photographed in her distinctive style, blurring reality and fantasy and blending the ordinary with the allegorical. Collection of Michael Mattis and Judith Hochberg, courtesy art2art Circulating Exhibitions.
Oscar Gustave Rejlander (attrib.), Maids Drawing Water at Freshwater, 1864, 6 1/8 x 4 3/8 inch. Collection of Michael Mattis and Judith Hochberg, courtesy art2art Circulating Exhibitions.
