Editorial Reviews


"[Cameron's] most perceptive biographer of recent years, Victoria Olsen, gets the balance right: 'Cameron could make perfectly focused images but she did not always want to.'"-- Anthony Lane, The New Yorker

"Victoria Olsen has written an excellent full scale biography which draws much of its strength from the considerable number of unpublished letters she has unearthed."-Independent on Sunday (UK)

"...a well-written and deeply researched book in which Olsen makes skillful use of the voluminous Cameron correspondence and makes her subject...come vividly to life."-The Times Higher Education Supplement (UK)

"Highly accomplished...Olsen's biography of Cameron is particularly good at making us understand just how uncertain mid-Victorians were about what photography was actually for."-Sunday Telegraph (UK)

"Victoria Olsen's biographical account is deftly written and well-crafted, using the latest research and unpublished letters."-The Independent (UK)
