Victorian Giants: The Birth of Art Photography
This major exhibition is the first to examine the relationship between four ground-breaking Victorian artists: Julia Margaret Cameron (1815?79), Lewis Carroll (1832?98), Lady Clementina Hawarden (1822?65) and Oscar Rejlander (1813?75). Drawn from public and private collections internationally, the exhibition features some of the most breath-taking images in photographic history. Influenced by historical painting and frequently associated with the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, the four artists formed a bridge between the art of the past and the art of the future, standing as true giants in Victorian photography.
