Harold Mortimer-Lamb

Young Child

c. 1912
Harold Mortimer-Lamb was an exacting technician and dedicated to photography’s capacity to transcribe deeper truths. His works epitomize the pictorialist goal of creating evocative images; a photograph becomes, as he stated, a “graphic representation … designed to awaken aesthetic pleasure or emotion in the mind of the beholder.”
