The photographer Grace Robertson died aged 90 two weeks ago, here is her obituary. We would have liked to celebrate her on the Post this week but all her work is enmeshed in copyright protection, even if one's only motive is celebratory rather than commercial, so we can only pay tribute by pointing Post readers towards her obituary and making do with celebrating five other women photographers who are less enmeshed in copyright protection. This is 'My Niece Julia', Julia Margaret Cameron's 1867 portrait of her niece, Julia Jackson – mother of Virginia Woolf. It's in the National Media Museum, Bradford/Science and Society Picture Library here.
