#JuliaMargaretCameron (11 June 1815 – 26 January 1879) was a British photographer. She took up photography at the age of 48 after having received a camera as a gift📷She saw photography as both an art and a science. Her style, using 'soft focus' wasn't widely appreciated in her times. She found more connection with pre-Raphaelite painters than with fellow photographers. During her career, Cameron registered each of her photographs with the copyright office and kept detailed records. ⁣ .⁣ .⁣ 🖼️Four young women holding flowers, J.M.
