Coffee Talks with Nan Colton: Julia Margaret Cameron – In Focus

Connect with the arts through monthly performances that give voice and embodiment to the two-dimensional. Nan Colton invites us to meet an artist or historical figure in a 30-minute presentation filmed live from the MFA, and presented via Zoom. Grab a cup of coffee and a morning snack, and enjoy from home!

This month’s program is entitled: Julia Margaret Cameron – In Focus

One of the greatest portraitists in the history of photography, Julia Margaret Cameron (1815–1879) blended an unorthodox technique, a deeply spiritual sensibility, and a Pre-Raphaelite-inflected aesthetic to create a gallery of vivid portraits and a mirror of the Victorian soul. Cameron took up the practice at the relatively late age of 48, after her daughter gifted her a camera. Her photography career was short but productive; she made around 900 photographs over a 12-year period, and reflects upon them, in this performance, as she ponders a return to India.
