Ask Morgana 061: Ellen Terry

Julia Margaret Cameron (1815-1879) was a pioneering photographer of the 19c. As such she produced her work well before the period I have been covering in these photographic posts. However, I would like to share with you one photograph she made in 1864. Sub-titled ‘Sadness’, it is a study of the actress Ellen Terry as a young woman. It is a beautiful portrait.
