The Photography of Charles Lutwidge Dodgson LECTURE TUESDAY, MARCH 10, 4 P.M.

Roy Flukinger, Senior Research Curator of Photography, speaks about the photography of Charles Lutwidge Dodgson—better known to the world as Lewis Carroll—on Tuesday, March 10, at 4 p.m.

Charles L. Dodgson, the young Oxford scholar who gained fame as the author Lewis Carroll, was one of the most accomplished amateur photographers of the Victorian Era. Although he called the art of photography "my one amusement," Dodgson became seriously devoted to this pastime and produced many memorable portraits of family, friends, and celebrities. Most often noted for his portraits of children, his photographs also present an insightful picture of the mid-nineteenth-century British middle class. When he died in 1898, Dodgson left behind an inspired body of work created over 25 years. A half century later, thanks largely the efforts of historians Helmut and Alison Gernsheim, Dodgson's work emerged from obscurity, and is now recognized as a significant figure in nineteenth-century photography.

The program is free and open to the public, but donations are welcome. Seating is first-come, first-served, and doors open at 3:30 p.m.

This program is presented in conjunction with the Ransom Center's current exhibition Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, on view through July 6.
