Julia Margaret Cameron, Iago – as the photograph is portentously titled – was taken by Julia Margaret Cameron in 1867. Its subject is an Italian model who generally sat for Victorian painters. But here he seems to flash forward from those long ago days, not just because of his modern looks but because Cameron’s closeup brings him so immediately from darkness to light and into our moment. Iago could be our contemporary.
