the angel at the tomb, 1870
another of my favorite (and most influential) photographers, Julia Margaret Cameron. as a teenager, i saved and saved my allowance until i finally had enough to purchase a large ‘coffee table’ book of her photographs. the lighting (natural!) is haunting and makes me swoon. i devoted an entire semester in college to reproducing her style of photography and still to this day feel my heart flutter whenever i happen upon one of her pictures.
