Mary Dillwyn’s Empty Pages

Mary Dillwyn (1816-1906) is believed to be Wales’s first female photographer. Her photos are interesting in their own right, not just because of who she was. Even so, I find myself more fascinated by some of the aspects of her legacy that I expect have been even more overlooked than the photos themselves. Specifically, the many empty pages from her 1853 Llysdinam album. Here is an excellent overview of pages 37 to 57.
