Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, better known by his pen name of Lewis Carroll, was an enigma: both a disciple of logic and a master of nonsense. Best known for his imaginative masterpieces Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass, he was also a keen and talented photographer. His fascination with this pioneering new process led him to take atmospheric portraits of family members and friends, and create a series of atmospheric and unforgettable images that record the beauty, grace and innocence of Victorian childhood.
