Swedish photographer married to Gustaf von Düben. She accompanied him on two research trips to Lapland in 1868 and 1871 where she photographed the local inhabitants using a stereo camera and a 20 x 13.5 cm camera for collodion wet plates. Her photographs were used to illustrate her husbands ethnological book Om Lappland och lapparne, företrädesvis de svenske [Lapland and the Lapps, preferably the Swedes] (1873). She used the commonly accepted scientific style of photography taking both straight on portraits and profiles of the same person. Her original photographs are archives at the Nordic Museum and Uppsala University Library.
