Publisher Description

Alice Liddell, sweetly dignified, the inspiration for the heroine of Alice in Wonderland, is posed and identified as Pomona, goddess of abundance, in a marvelous 1872 photograph by the irrepressible Julia Margaret Cameron; appropriately she is the cover girl for this lavish standalone publication, which also acted as the catalogue accompanying the recent exhibition of the same title at the National Gallery of Art, Washington, (October 31 2010-January 30 2011), and the Museé d'Orsay Paris, March 6 - May 29, 2011). The title itself neatly refers both to the mechanical lens of the several elaborate photographic apparatus that were being invented and refined from the 1840s on, and the eye both of the photographer and the painter, sometimes one and the same. It reminds us too that it may not be the technique or medium that matters, as much as the eye and mind wielding the apparatus of photography, or the materials of painting: the message perhaps rather than the medium.
