Ruth Bernhard (1905 - 2006)

Woman in Box, n.d.

Ruth Bernhardt's photographs of female nudes are to the human form what Ansel Adams' landscapes are to nature; iconic and definitive. German-born Bernhard is one of the pre-eminent twentieth-century women photographers. A member of Group f64 in the 1930s, her dramatic studio images of nudes and still life are included in major international museum collections.
