The author of Alice in Wonderland
was also a photographer of great talent. As part of the English Season, this exhibition of photos by Lewis Carroll includes one of his favourite models, the young Alexandra Kitchin, known as Xie, and an exceptional series of portraits of Ellen Tracy's family, the latter being an actress whom the theatre-loving Carroll fervently admired. Only the plate negatives remain from this series.
