She travelled the world on assignments from magazines such as LIFE and Look, and her most celebrated photograph from those travels is “An American Girl in Italy” (1951). In 1952, she married fellow photographer and filmmaker Morris Engel, with whom she worked on two independent feature films. In the following decades, she taught photography in New York at the School of Visual Arts and the International Center of Photography.

  • Mr. Everett Colborn of Dublin, Texas (mounted) and Flight Officer Gene Autry
    By John Stryker
    Located in Dallas, TX
    Signed and titled. Vintage gelatin silver prints. Johm Stryker was born in Rockford, Illinois, September 1, 1883. He is most remembered for his body of photographs he took of the "Olympic of Western sport"*- the Rodeo. During his lifetime he crossed America, working rodeos as an announcer, a producer, promoter and sometimes a rider. He invented the chute that the animals come out of and he developed new ways of photographing action during an event. Dramatic shots were taken from the ground, propping his camera on the toe of his right boot right next to a bucking bronco. Some historians believe that John Stryker was directly responsible for the growth and sophistication of the sport. His negatives are in the collection of the University of Texas at Permian Basin, Odessa. His photographs have been exhibited during his lifetime at the Buffalo Bill Museum in Cody, Wyoming, and the Amon Carter Museum in Ft. Worth, Texas. His photographs have been published widely including Life, Look, The Cattleman, The Western Horseman, and The Quarter Horse Journal. In 1977, The Rodeo of John Addison Stryker...
