Julia Margaret CAMERON

1815—1879

Famous Victorian photographer and great-aunt of artist Vanessa Stephen BELL and author Virginia Stephen WOOLF.  Photographs were taken by Cameron in Cornwall, who also recorded the Stephens family during summers at Talland House, St Ives (and London).

Virginia Woolf later wrote a play Freshwater, based on the bohemian lifestyle of Cameron and friends on the Isle of Wight.  Her home, Dimbola, is now maintained by the National Trust in her name.
