The 1860s Fashion Photographer: Lady Clementina Hawarden

The photographer O. G. Rejlander wrote an obituary, ‘In Memoriam’ published in the British Journal of Photography (27 January 1865) stating that Hawarden

‘worked honestly, in a good, comprehensible style …She also was in her manner and conversation – fair, straightforward, nay manly, with a feminine grace. She is a loss to photography, for she would have progressed. She is a loss to many, many friends. She is an enormous loss to a loving family’.
