Visions of Ceylon on the Isle of Wight

Although you could be forgiven for thinking Visions of Ceylon is a gathering to enjoy some afternoon tea, it's actually an exhibition of photographs taking place at the Dimbola Museum in Freshwater Bay. 

Julia Margaret Cameron: Visions of Ceylon, which runs from now until January 5th next year, is a celebration of the work of the local photography pioneer who moved from the her Dimbola Lodge home on the island to Ceylon (now Sri Lanka) in 1875. 

During the four years leading up to her death in 1879, she used the techniques she had mastered on the Isle of Wight to capture striking portrait images of the local people - many of which have never been exhibited before. 

As well as remembering Cameron's work, her former Isle of Wight home also hosts regular exhibitions from photographers around the globe.

During winter, Dimbola is open from 10am to 4pm,  Tuesday to Sunday. Entry costs £4 for adults.ADNFCR-3083-ID-801663105-ADNFCR
