40 Eerie Portraits of Children Taken by Lewis Carroll in the 19th Century

 Lewis Carroll was the pen name of Charles L. Dodgson, author of the children's classics Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass. Besides writing, Carroll created a number of fine photographs.  Over 3000 photographs were taken by Carroll, but only 1000 have survived due to the passage of time and deliberate destruction.

Included in his collection are portraits of children in every different costumes and situations, eventually making nude studies of them. Despite conjecture, little real evidence of child abuse can be brought against him. He died on January 14, 1898, leaving an enigma behind him.
