Martin Parr Hardback
Part of the 55s series
Known the world over for his stories of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass,Lewis Carroll (1832-1898) also pursued a photographic career, brought together in this collection of 55 photographs.
Compelling portraits of Alice Liddell, his inspiration for his popular novel, and other children are presented alongside those of his family members and eminent Victorians such as Alfred Lord Tennyson and John Everett Millais.
We enter Carroll's wonderfully strange world with studies of anatomical skeletons taken during his years spent at Christ Church College, Oxford.
A dedicated and prolific photographer, Carroll created approximately 3,000 images during his twenty-five years of photographic activity.
Carroll enthusiasts and novices alike, as well as anyone interested in Victorian England or the history of photography, will find this monograph irresistibly essential.
