Julia Margaret Cameron at the Frick

On Saturday, we went to the Frick Art and Historical Center to see the exhibit For my best beloved sister Mia: An Album of Photographs by Julia Margaret Cameron. Julia Margaret Cameron is one of my favorite historical photographers. Her work epitomizes Victorian portrait photography, often with allegorical themes.

The exhibit showcases the album that Cameron assembled with her sister, Maria “Mia” Jackson, consisting mainly of portraits of family, friends, and neighbors, including Alfred Lord Tennyson.
