William James Stillman (1828-1901) was an American photographer, painter, journalist and art critic. He was married and his son died and his first wife committed suicide in 1868 and it was following these tragedies that he dedicated himself to photography. He traveled with John Ruskin to the Alps and produced books from his European travels photographs of classical sites, most notably of Greece and the Acropolis. His books The Acropolis of Athens: Illustrated Picturesquely and Architecturally in Photographs (1870) and Poetic Localities: Photographs of Adirondacks, Cambridge, Crete, Italy, Athens (1876)[1] included his photographs.
 
In 1871 Stillman married pre-Raphaelite painter Marie Spartali (1844-1927) and he continued to photograph and was a foreign correspondent for The Times
