    She was very much a complete photographer. Advocate for Atget, teacher, architecture, protraiture, still, and science photography. Very much in the same class as Andreas Feininger whose work was very wide ranging. She was more about documentation than art and from what I gather from an old (80s) interview in American Photographer she could be difficult to work with. Uncompromising seems to be a good word to use to describe her, which probably did not endear her to a male dominated publishing industry during most of her career.

    For something completely different ...

    See her self-portrait in The Camera I.

    I have only seen a few of her pictures, which I did like. Her prints of Atget's negatives seem disappointing though (although I have only seen them in reproduction) - too contrasty as she insisted on using silver gelatine paper when the negs are too contrasty.
