Carroll is best known to the world as the author of the fantastic and loved children's story, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. Yet, long before he published the story, he took up photography as a hobby, diligently studied the craft and produced roughly 3,000 images over a period of 20 years. This volume stands as the definitive work on Carroll's photography. It features four rare albums, reproduced in their original order, which the artist himself assembled and showed to friends and family. A chronological register of every known Carroll photograph follows, making this an invaluable resource.
