Day 107 - Photo History Monday (AKA Bearded History)

Julia Margaret Cameron
Whisper of the Muse, c. 1865

Given a camera in 1863, Julia Margaret Cameron would have a huge impact on the development of modern photography with her closely cropped portraits and narrative portrait styles.

She utilized William Henry Fox Talbot's process of the calotype which yielded a soft painterly quality. With the addition of soft focus and long exposures (often in excess of 5 minutes) she created a personal style with her images of scientific figures, writers, and biblical/mythological narratives.

Her work has influenced photographers from the 1800's to today (including my own work). She is one of the first renowned fine-art portraitists which was no small feat for a woman of her time.

Happy Bearded History.
