|Dates: ||1815 - 1894|
The wife of Horatio Ross, Henrietta, née Macrae, may not have shared his passion for shooting but was more enthusiastic about photography. In the 1858 Photographic Society of Scotland exhibition in Edinburgh she showed A Photographer in His Studio, presumably a study of her husband. In the British Association for the Advancement of Science exhibition in Aberdeen the following year she submitted a waxed-paper landscape of her native Scottish Highlands. She outlived her husband by eight years.
