I love biographies geared toward younger audiences because they are accessible hit the high points and don’t overwhelm with detail I hate biographies for young people because I’m freuently left with uestions So I would have loved to see of Julia Margaret Cameron’s photographs and learned about what inspired various poses and photos But I was very happy to learn about this early and talented photographer Many of the people she knew and photographed are familiar names but hers is not It’s exciting to see so many unknown names getting brought into the light through children’s biographies

Stand There She ShoutedThe lens turns to Julia Margaret Cameron an ambitious and fascinating early photographer of 1800s celebrities and romantic staged tableauxThe girls in Julia Margaret’s family were known as the beautiful Miss Pattles all except her Plain short and clever Julia Margaret would eventually create her own beauty in the photographs sh. I thought this was a really inadeuate biography of Julia Margaret Cameron the pioneering Victorian era photographer The emphasis on her physical unattractiveness was really annoying The author mentions several times that her sisters were beautiful and that she was short and plain In addition to the point that her physical attractiveness had nothing to do with her accomplishments I have been reading about Julia Margaret Cameron for years and never thought anything at all about the way she looked What kind of message is this for the young readers this book was written for I suppose that the author might have emphasized Cameron's looks because Cameron was known to be passionate about beauty and was heavily influenced by the pre Raphaelite Brotherhood She seems to think that Cameron's greatest accomplishment was getting photography recognized as a legitimate art form There seems to be little recognition that she was one the most accomplished portraitists of the Victorian Age The author spends time describing how annoying Cameron was when she tried to get people to pose for her than she does talking about her historical significance The photos of Cameron's that are used to illustrate the book are far from her most compelling It almost seems that the author hasn't really looked closely at Cameron's work or at the least doesn't appreciate it I purchased it for the library because we have a need for biographies of women but I don't think I will be able to recommend it
