Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
BPH has learnt that Violet Hamilton, who worked closely with Michael G Wilson OBE in developing his collection of photography has died suddenly. Violet, an Australian by birth but a long term UK resident, was a Senior Curator of the Wilson Centre for Photography, London, and a photographer in her own right, exhibiting her work. She lectured, was a researcher, historian and writer with a specialist knowledge on nineteenth century women photographers, in particular of the work of Julia Margaret Cameron. She wrote the text to Annals of My Glass House (1998) which used Cameron's photographs and contributed to many other publications or supported others in their research.
Her funeral will take place on Thursday 17 July at 11am at Grantham Crematorium, Harrowby Road, Grantham. Lincolnshire, NG31 9DT with a gathering afterwards at Ellys Manor House, her and Clive's home.
No flowers, but donations may be made to: The Leaveners via the Funeral Director, Robert Holland, 14 St Catherine's Road, Grantham. Lincolnshire. NG31 6TS, tel: 01476 594422
