Lida Moser 1920-2014

 

Lida Moser (' s)

genre-spanning photographs

appeared in magazines like Look,

Esquire and Vogue

during their heyday

in the 1950s and 60s

 

(...)

 

In the late 1940s

Ms. Moser became

a member of the Photo League,

a loose-knit cooperative

of photographers,

including Berenice Abbott

and Weegee

(the pseudonym of Arthur Fellig),

dedicated to capturing

the reality of life in New York.

 

Ms. Moser excelled

at photojournalism

at a time when women

were a rarity in the field.

 

Vogue sent her to Britain

to photograph artists

and writers in 1949,

and then to Quebec in 1950

to capture life in its rural towns.
