Summary: CLEMENTINA, VISCOUNTESS HAWARDEN (1822-1865) produced over eight hundred photographs during her all-too-brief life. Most of these were portraits of her adolescent daughters. By whisking away the furniture and bric-a-brac common in scenes of upper-class homes of the Victorian period, Lady Hawarden transformed the sitting room of her London residence into a photographic studio -- a private space for taking surprising photos of her daughters in fancy dress.

Under the spell of Roland Barthes, Mavor unveils the peculiarities of the erotic in Lady Hawarden's images through a writerly approach that remembersand rewrites adolescence as sustained desire. In turn autobiographical, theoretical, historical, and analytical, Mavor's study caresses these mysteriously ripped and scissored images into fables of sapphic love and the real ...show less
