More King Lear photographs by Julia Margaret Cameron

Following up on Mary’s wonderful post, I wanted to share two more of Cameron’s photographs restaging King Lear. They are very complex photographs in their interpretation and engagement with the play, but I’m also interested in the way that, by representing one moment from a play, they anticipate the logic of the film still.

Thanks to Kay Heffernan for leading me to these photographs.
