Exposiciones que me gustaría ver Getty:A Royal Passion: Queen Victoria and Photography

La Reina Victoria fue, probablemente una de las primeras en conocer y  utilizar la fotografía a gran escala tanto como aficionada, como coleccionista y lo que es mas conocido como "publicidad" de su imagen para los súbditos de su imperio.
Su relación con famosos fotógrafos es conocida sobre todo con Georges Washington Wilson. Poso para muchos artistas.
El Museo Getty esta realizando una exposición de fotografía con este tema


A Royal Passion: Queen Victoria and Photography
February 4–June 8, 2014 at the Getty Center

Queen Victoria and Photography: Beginnings


Over the course of her long reign, the queen was photographed as loving mother, devoted wife, grieving widow, and powerful sovereign. She was the first British monarch to have her life fully recorded by the camera, and her portraits became emblematic of an entire age. 
Queen Victoria and Prince Albert sat before the camera for many photographers. The royal portrait was realized in different mediums ranging from daguerreotype to calotype to albumen silver print, but they all had one thing in common: the photographs were private and not for public distribution. In these intimate views of Victoria as loving wife and caring mother, her vitality and youthful appearance is in contrast to the later, imperial portraits. 


Como parte de la presentación se incluye un vídeo curioso que merece la pena ver y , además, el Getty realiza un concurso de fotografía con un tema victoriano
