NEW YORK, N.Y.- An exhibition of portraits by 19th century British photographer Julia Margaret Cameron will be on view at Hans P. Kraus Jr. Fine Photographs from October 4th through November 18th. Julia Margaret Cameron marks the first time in more than a dozen years that an exhibition of her work has been shown in New York City. More than 20 albumen prints from 1864 to 1874 will be on view. Most of the photographs were gifts from the artist to her niece, Adeline Maria Jackson; they have remained in the family ever since and have never been exhibited. A fully illustrated catalogue by the photographic historian Dr. Larry J. Schaaf will accompany the exhibition.
