He wrote �Alice in Wonderland� and �Through the Looking Glass� for her. Alethea is an ancient Greek the word meaning honesty and sincerity. Cameron's photographic portraits are considered among the finest in the early history of photography. She set up a private studio at her Isle of Wight home at the age of 48, after her daughter gave her a camera, and she became expert at using the collodion wet-plate process. She used friends, servants and neighbours as subjects, including the scientists John Herschel and Charles Darwin, and the poet Alfred Lord Tennyson. (Photo by SSPL/Getty Images)
