Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, better known by his pseudonym Lewis Carroll, was an English mathematician, author, and amateur photographer in the 19th century. Most famous for writing ‘Alice in Wonderland,’ he was also a prolific portrait photographer (once the nascent medium became more accessible in the 1850s). Dodgson hand-colored some of his prints, becoming an amateur master of the slow “wet collodion process,” which became outdated by the 1870s in favor of the faster “dry-plate process.” Dodgson photographed men and women of all ages, but disproportionately focused on children who posed nude or partially nude; this has led to retrospective wariness of his work.
