Ive always been in love with this famous photograph of Julia Stephen (1846–1895), a renowned beauty in her day according to Wikipedia (I can see why) and mother of Virginia Stephen who would later become better known as Virginia Woolf. The photograph was taken by the celebrated Victorian photography pioneer (all the more so since she was a woman) Julia Margaret Cameron (1815-1879).


Gladys Cooper (English actress from 1888-1971). What a poignant photo. || Looks like Kristen Stewart... all faces are recycled :)
