Julia Margaret Cameron did everything a Victorian photographer was NOT supposed to do, including being a woman. The results of her work are astonishingly clear and look as though they may have been taken yesterday. There are none of the usual stiff,uncomfortable poses to be found here.    South Africa, FMP: Julia Margaret Cameron
