"And now, ladies and gentlemen, you have seen the Neptune bathing suit conceived, designed, and created. If you would kindly step into the salesroom you will see it come to life.

The Riviera suit.

The Christmas package.

The Ballerina.

The Sarong.

The Scotch Mist.

The Pantywaist.

The Olympic, for the sportswoman.

And now, the Steamliner.”

Neptune’s Daughter (1949)

This photograph was taken during a Society outing to Hampton Court. Included, amongst others, are Roger Fenton (1819-1869), Francis Bedford (1816-1894), Benjamin Brecknell Turner (1815-1894) and Hugh Welch Diamond (1808-1886). The photographic van that Roger Fenton used in the Crimea can be seen in the background. The Photographic Society was set up in 1853 for ‘the promotion of the Art and Science of Photography, by the interchange of thought and experience amongst Photographers’.
July 1856

"I have noticed that if you look carefully at people’s eyes the first five seconds they look at you, the truth of their feelings will shine through for just an instant before it flickers away."

One of my favorite things I ever came across at the MET museum. Julia Margaret Cameron (1815-1879) is, arguably, one of the greatest portraitists in the history of photography. This photo is called The Parting of Guinivere and Lancelot, 1874.
