Yevonde Cumbers was an Edwardian photographer and a passionate suffragette. She moved in circles that saw her make acquaintances with all the most interesting and glamorous figures of the time including the Mitford sisters.
As a result she has created a stunning collection of photographic portraits that are not only a record of her amazing era but also infused with her often bizarre ideas, costumes and poses to avoid the cliches of portrait photography that were inherent at the time.
