La reine Victoria et ses enfants : une approche historique des photographies de groupe en famille au XIXe siècle

Abstract : This paper deals with the combination of historical research, historical methods and the use of images as a historical source. It focuses more precisely on methodological issues about family photographs in the decades that follow the invention of photography in 1839. We will wonder how these images can be considered as intimate sources. By analysing a family portrait of the Queen Victoria and her four eldest children by Roger Fenton (1854), we will try to understand this picture in serial and put it in relation to other photographs from different families. The second part of this paper will analyse how this portrait of the Queen, besides strong visual norms, can be considered as a place of freedom in the representation of motherhood, childhood and family ties.
