Kirsty Stonell Walker's research on Pre-Raphaelite women spanned a quarter of a century, the rest of which was Pre-Raphaelite Girl Gang (2017). A fascination for the lives of the women of the Pre-Raphaelite movement, Kirsty wrote a biography of notorious artist's model Fanny Cornforth Stunner: The Fall and Rise of Fanny Cornforth in 2006. Since 2011, she has written a blog, The Kissed Mouth, where she publishes original research on the many models of the Pre-Raphaelites. She has also written two novels about Victorian artists as well as giving talks to art groups and museums on her subject. Julia Margaret Cameron received her first camera when she was 48, but her love affair with the medium had already spanned several decades and continents. An enthusiast for this newly invented device; she travelled the world befriending experts who taught her the magic and the science of the lens, such as the astronomer John Herschel and pioneering photographers like her brother in law the Earl Somers and the Swedish risk-taking artist Oscar Rejlander.
