Julian Cox, a curator at the J. Paul Getty Museum, is coauthor, with Colin Ford, of Julia Margaret Cameron: The Complete Photographs. Julia Margaret Cameron (1815-1879) became a photographer at the age of forty-eight, and concentrated mainly on potraits. In Julia Margaret Cameron Cox and Ford provide pictures of all 1,222 of Cameron's photographs, along with essays about the photographer and her work. "A highly worthy investment for all serious art and photography collections," commented Carolyn Kuebler in a Library Journal review. A Publishers Weekly contributor claimed, "This book is a necessary expense for any Victorianist or early photography buff."
