The Prettiest Doll in the World, July 5, 1870. Creator: Lewis Carroll Featured Image

The Prettiest Doll in the World, July 5, 1870. Creator: Lewis Carroll

The Prettiest Doll in the World, July 5, 1870. The model in this photograph, Alexandra (Xie) Kitchin, posed more than fifty times over eleven years, frequently for images inspired by literature. The title Carroll gave this work is the refrain of the poem "The Lost Doll" by the popular Victorian author Charles Kingsley. It tells of a child's affection for her lost toy, which she finds and dotes on in spite of damage it has suffered. It is unclear whether Xie is meant to recall the girl or her doll, but the emulsion peeling from the edges of the glass negative (which Carroll purposefully retained during printing) frames her obstinance, a visual echo of the dramas played out in childhood imagination
