Exhibition Tour—Julia Margaret Cameron
Friday, November 22, 10:30–11:30 a.m.

In 1863 Julia Margaret Cameron received her first camera as a gift from her daughter and son-in-law. At the age of 48 the eclectic Victorian Cameron used the camera, which she described as "a living thing, with voice and memory and creative vigor," to capture sitters over long exposure times. In doing this she risked criticism, for the images were not as sharp as the media she used could support. They did, however, allow time to float through the lens and for time and space to be recorded by her sitter's slight shifts or movements. This approach allowed for a soft sensibility and an image infused with the spirit of her sitters.
