Sarah Acland was inspired to take up photography by her acquaintance with artistic luminaries such as John Ruskin and Dante Gabriel Rossetti. Following in the footsteps of Julia Margaret Cameron, whom she also knew, Acland became an important pioneer in the field of colour photography. This catalogue of her work includes the influential photographs she made using the Sanger Shepherd and Autochrome processes. Her subjects include Oxford scenes, architectural and nature studies, and portraits of people in her circle.
