Friends with many of the prominent artists, poets, and thinkers if the Victirian age, her work reflected a deeply spiritual and historical sensibility. She quickly created a new aesthetic for what photography would become. Many include her as one of the first photographers to use the camera for a creative and artistic purpose. This photo is titled “The Echo”.
