This photographic exhibition explores some remarkable people, where they lived, and also the literary connections associated with their presence on the island. The people include Queen Victoria and Prince Albert at Osborne House, Julia Margaret Cameron at Dimbola, Alfred Lord Tennyson at Farringford and others. For the literary connections, quotations by Tennyson, Cameron, John Keats, Longfellow, W H Auden and others provide relevant links to the images. The wartime PLUTO project and Sir Winston Churchill’s tribute are also included, together with some infra-red landscape images with appropriate quotations.
All of the images have been produced digitally but include some ‘replicas’ of 19th century early printing techniques.
