“I longed to arrest all the beauty that came before me and at length the longing has been satisfied.”

Julia Margaret Cameron (1815 – 1879) was a British photographer born in Calcutta. She only started taking photographs later in life when she was given a camera at age 48 by her daughter. Her career only lasted until her death eleven years later, but during that time she managed to develop a unique style, creating closely cropped, dreamlike portraits.
