(7 years ago)
May 29, 2011 /Photography News/ Born 129 years ago today, on 29 May 1882, in New York, Doris Ulmann was was an American photographer, best known for her dignified portraits of the people of Appalachia, particularly craftsmen and musicians such as Jean Ritchie's family.Southern mountaineer, circa 1928, Doris Ulmann, Library of Congress Prints and Photographs Division, Warren and Margot Coville collectionUlmann began her photography career in 1918, as a portraitist. Trained as a pictorialist by Clarence White, Ulmann's early work includes a series of portraits of prominent intellectuals, artists and writers: William Butler Yeats, John Dewey, Max Eastman, Sinclair Lewis, Lewis Mumford, Joseph Wood Krutch, Martha Graham, Anna Pavlova, Paul Robeson, and Lillian Gish.In the late 1920s and early 1930s she travelled through Eastern Kentucky and other parts of Appalachia photographing the people of the region, with a profound respect for her sitters and an ethnographer's eye for culture. Ulmann's equipment was somewhat cumbersome and old-fashioned for her time. She most often used a 6½ x 8½ inch, tripod-mounted view camera, although the lightweight, hand-held camera was more prevalent, and she produced soft-focus platinum prints. The muted, warm tonality of the platinum image was a gentle complement to her respectful, sympathetic portrayals of subjects whose lives were different from her own. Doris Ulmann died August 28, 1934. Upon her death, a foundation she[..]

Her feeling for places as reflected in images of Boris Pasternak's home, Chekhov's house and Mao Zedong's bedroom was so sensitive that some viewers insisted they could see invisible people. 'Inge Morath possesses the priceless quality of making the world look as though it had been discovered only this morning and she was present with her lens to record its bright freshness,'' Harrison E. Salisbury wrote in The New York Times Book Review about the couple's book ''In Russia'' (Viking, 1969).
