Julia Margaret Cameron was an impressive photographer who became the most important British photographer of the Victorian era with her religious-romantic scenes and extraordinary portraits. Her grandniece described her as a strong-willed personality who had spent many exhausting years as a housewife and mother before she almost by chance became a major artist at the age of 48.

The photographer was born in 1815 in Calcutta, India. At the age of 21, she met lawyer Charles Hay Cameron, 20 years his senior in South Africa. Both married two years later and got six children together. Later, they bought two properties on the Isle of Wight and named the property Dimbola Lodge. This became the starting point and center of her life as a photographer. In her estate, she received and portrayed her famous guests and arranged pictures. The Dimbola Lodge was said to be "truly a house where everyone enjoyed themselves and where everyone, whether male, female or child, was always welcome." Cameron was very enthusiastic and full of energy she was involved in any of her undertakings. Their selflessness and helpfulness made them dear to a large circle of friends.

Her pictures were so sought after that new negatives of her early works were produced and 70 motifs in two different shades - reddish brown and black - were republished. Julia Margaret died at the age of 63 in Kalutara. In one of her last letters she wrote: "A blessing rested on my photographic work; Millions gave them pleasure and many a deeper happiness.
