Sadness, 1864
Inspiration from the Musee D'Orsay today - I got to see an incredible collection of Julia Margaret Cameron's photographs as a part of their Pre-Raphaelite painting/photography exhibit.  She captured portraits, especially of women, like no one had before her and has surely inspired many contemporary female photographers.  She was given a camera as a gift by her daughter at the age of 48, thus beginning her 11-year career as an artist on the Isle of Wight until moving to Sri Lanka where she got sick and died suddenly in 1879.
