Judy Dater contributed mightily to photography’s break-out moment from Modernism in the 1960s. One of a handful of female photographers from that period, her compelling and insightful photographs established a new model in portraiture especially as it concerned the traditional depiction of women, and the depiction of male subjects by a female artist.

Looking Back [June Wayne] depicts renowned American lithographer June Wayne. Dater photographed the artist ‘on the verso’ so to speak, wearing the magnifying lens she uses while working in the studio. This elegant, imaginative and witty photograph is a welcome addition particularly because Wayne’s work occupies an important place in the Museum’s contemporary collection of works on paper.
