Julia Margaret Cameron (11 June 1815 – 26 January 1879) was one of the most famous women photographers of the 19th century. She was given her first camera fairly late in life. What's more interesting is that quite a few of her portraits feature some of the most brilliant people from Victorian society, e.g. Charles Darwin, Alfred Lord Tennyson and George Frederic Watts. She was taking pictures during the early days of photography, so it's interesting to see such good shots from this time.

A Steve McCurry photo of Fishermen taken in Sri Lanka, 1995. Quote by Steve McCurry: "I had photographed these fishermen with this very unique way of fishing from the shore and after a while I realised that to get the best angle was to join them, so I had to wade into the water up to my waist. It's such a strange and wonderful way they fish perched on this pole, which is jammed on this coral reef, and they sit there for a couple of hours in the morning"
