  • Author's note: This poem was written in response to Hugh Welch Diamond's photograph, 'Seated woman with bird' (c.1855). Diamond was one of the earliest photographers. A doctor by profession, he decided to specialise in the treatment of the mentally ill and was appointed to the Surrey County Lunatic Asylum where he produced numerous photographs of his patients. Diamond believed that photography could assist in the treatment of mental disorders.
