This exhibition, Portraits to Dream In, will juxtapose the lives and work of two of the most important & popular women practitioners in the history of photography – Julia Margaret Cameron ( 1815 – 1875) and Francesca Woodman (1958 – 1981).
Spanning their careers, the exhibition includes some of their best-known and most loved work as well as lesser-known photographs.
Julia Margaret Cameron and Francesca Woodman encountered very different ways of making and viewing photographs. However, there are many fascinating resonances between the two.
Despite the passage of time that separates them, both women worked for a relatively short and concentrated period. To date, their careers and output have, to some degree, been read with an emphasis on their biographic circumstance. In contrast, this exhibition proposes new ways of appreciating and thinking about these important artists, portraiture and the relationships between 19th and 20th century photographic practice.
