Happy Birthday Lewis Carroll! Most people know of Lewis Carroll through his writing of Alice in Wonderland, however Carroll was also a photographer. Born in England in 1832 as Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, he assumed the pseudonym: Lewis Carroll, after his first literary work, a poem, Solitude, in 1856. He experimented with photography in 1856, even considered making it his profession. Below is a picture of Alice Lidelle whom most believe to be, in part, the inspiration for the “Alice” in Carroll’s Wonderland.
