Exhibition: Julia Margaret Cameron at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York

The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York will host an exhibition of Cameron's work starting 19 August 2013 until 5 January 2014.

This will be the first New York City museum exhibition devoted to Cameron's work in nearly a generation, and the first ever at the Met. The showing of thirty-five works is drawn entirely from the Metropolitan's rich collection, including major works from the Rubel Collection acquired in 1997 and the Gilman Collection acquired in 2005.

Wow Bobbie, I guess I've got to respect your opinion.

However, I believe that if you saw this show, you may think differently.

Given that these early cobbled and banged-to-gether wooden box cameras were operated with such photographic primaeval click'n hope-for-the-best result. And, after sloshing the glass negatives in some guessed % solution made up of 'whatever' the early photos shouldn't be treated as works of art - more like photographic accidents.

David - Thank you for this very apposite piece of information. We are off to New York next Thursday, specifically to see the Photos of the Civil War exhibition also at the Met.  So we now have another highlight to which we can look forward. That said there is never any shortage of interesting things to do and see in NYC but sounds like this trip is going to be one to treasure. Thanks again for the information.  Regards, Donald
