Alexandra 'Xie' Rhoda Kitchin (1864 – 1925) was a notable 'child-friend' and favourite photographic subject of Charles Lutwidge Dodgson 
(Lewis Carroll).
Carroll once posed the question: “How do you achieve excellence in photography?” with the answer “Put Xie in front of the lens.”
Lewis Carroll photographed her around fifty times, from age four until just before her sixteenth birthday.
