About the play:
In 1850s England, photography is a newfangled sensation. Is it art? Truth? A frivolous fad? In the historically factual yet playfully skewed world of Exposure Time, photographers Julia Margaret Cameron and Charles Dodgson (aka Lewis Carroll) duke out these questions in front of Alice Liddell, heroine of Alice in Wonderland and cherished photographic subject of them both.
