Victorian Giants: The Birth Of Art PhotographyBringing together, for the first time, the works of four of the most celebrated figures in art photography, Lewis Carroll, Julia Margaret Cameron, the 'Father of Photoshop' Oscar Rejlander and Clementina Hawarden. These four artists are the Victorian Giants featured in a major National Portrait Gallery exhibition on the birth of art photography in the Victorian era. It's the first exhibition in London to feature the work of Swedish born Oscar Rejlander since the artist's death and includes his famous picture Two Ways of Life of 1856-7. Constructed from over 30 separate negatives, it used his pioneering technique combining several different negatives to create a single final image. Lewis Carroll's photographs of Alice Liddell, his muse for Alice in Wonderland, are also among the images on display which, for conservation reasons, are rarely on view.

 

About National Portrait Gallery

The National Portrait Gallery houses portraits of significant figures from the late 15th century to the present day. This isn't the place to come for serious works of exceptional artistic merit - the overriding aim of the National Portrait Gallery is to reflect the status of the sitter, not the artist - but where else in London could you hope to find The Beatles, Henry VIII, Sir Richard Branson and JK Rowling all hanging out together? The appeal of this gallery (opened in 1856) rests simply in its comprehensive commemoration of British history from the late 15th century to the present day through the medium of portraiture.
