Julia Margaret Cameron was a well known British photographer who lived in Ceylon, now Sri Lanka from 1875 until her death in Kalutara in 1879. Although she took many photographs of Sri Lanka from 1875 onwards, sadly many of those photographs have not survived although there are some photographs of Sri Lankans.
