Julia Margaret Cameron became an artist late in life. She did not begin her career until the age of 48 years when her daughter and son-in-law gave her a camera as a Christmas present. Although she was not technically an artist before the camera was in her hands, she always led her life as an artist, as much as a woman in Victorian England could, while remaining respectable. She was always surrounded by the most brilliant, most creative, and most interesting people that Victorian England had to offer. Her family was well off and well known. Her sisters were known as great beauties, but Julia seemed to make up for her lack of beauty with charm and eccentricity, which made her a great hostess and later helped her to become a celebrated artist in a brand new medium.
