Throughout her long and varied career, Judy Dater has probed themes of identity, feminism and the human connection with nature, with portraits and nude studies characterized by psychological power and beauty. Her early work is often associated with the cultural shift begun in the 1960s, when she was, for a time, an activist icon. Dater has photographed, lectured and published extensively, and her influence on later 20th century photography is definitive.
