Incredible.  Thank you so much for posting this!  I don't know if she was WAY ahead of her time...or we have been behind the times all along!

She's a fascinating photographer, on of the reasons her work appears quite modern is that the pictorialist photography movement (Pictorialism)has been rediscovered and is quite fashionable again.

Like most things... it eventually comes back into fashion.. though a little bit tweaked upon the reimagining.

If you're interested in this style of photography from the Victorian era, I recommend Camera Work by Alfred Stieglitz which is a compilation of the photographs featured in the period photographic magazine of the same name, and the associated history.

I've seen some of her actual photographs at the V&A in London. It's about time she had more recognition Smiley

The V&A also has some good articles about her on their website:

have to admit they look more alive than most of the pictures at the time (though to be honest, portraits of dead people were a common subject...Wink

Lovely! Fantastic work on her part, I'm so glad she got the chance to express her beautiful vision.

That delicate forest flower,   
With scented breath and look so like a smile,   
Seems, as it issues from the shapeless mould,   
An emanation of the indwelling Life,   
A visible token of the upholding Love,   
That are the soul of this great universe.

~William Cullen Bryant
