Lewis Carroll Photographer

Presento en este post algunas fotos de Lewis Carroll, el autor de Alicia en el Pais de las Maravillas, que fue un destacado fotógrafo del siglo XIX.
En muchos estudios se considera que son fotos que tienen un componente erótico y llegaron, incluso, a estar,casi, ocultas de la gente.
Pienso, sin embargo, que estamos ante una situación que pasa mucho en el arte y en la historia:
  • Juzgamos cosas,hechos, del ayer con el punto de vista de hoy.
Es un buen fotógrafo, muy buen fotógrafo que fotografió según y como se hacía en su época.
Veamos un ejemplo con una carta de gabinete de Disderi de esos años

Lewis Carroll (1832-1898), Photographer and author of 'Alice in Wonderland'
Lewis Carroll (Charles Lutwidge Dodgson)

Dodgson created his famous pen name from his own: the Latin for 'Charles' is 'Carolus', thus 'Carroll'; 'Lutwidge' (Dodgson's mother's maiden name) = 'Lugwig', the German for 'Lewis'. Dodgson became an undergraduate of Christ Church, Oxford, in 1851 and, when he took up photography in 1856, was a Student (Fellow) and Mathematics Lecturer of the college
