My Favourite Picture “I Wait” (1864): “(…) Young Rachel Gurney’s forlorn expression does not quite fit her role as an angel, but in a humorous way, her performance supports this photograph’s staged look.

Resting her chin on her crossed arms, she appears resigned to her fate of posing for the camera. Julia Margaret Cameron made a suite of photographs based on putti from Renaissance and post-Renaissance paintings. As children, Rachel and her sister Laura were often recruited to play the cherubs. Years later, they remembered the patience it took to pose for their great aunt. (…)” (Tratto da Getty Museum)
