A Photographer's Life: 1990-2005

WIPI Distinguished Photographer Award 2003



Receives the 2005 Women In Photography International Distinguished Photographer Award

"My responsibility as an artist is to work, to sing for my supper, to make art, beautiful and powerful, that adds and reveals; to beautify the mess of a messy world, to heal the sick and feed the helpless; to shout bravely from the rooftops and storm barricaded doors and voice the specificity of our historical moment."

"The Louisiana Project,"
a new work by the noted artist Carrie Mae Weems that was commissioned as part of the bicentennial celebrations surrounding the commemoration of the Louisiana Purchase. Weems has a distinguished career as a photographer interested in history and social critique and her work frequently addresses questions of race, class, and gender.

RUTH BERNHARD ( 1905 - DEC. 18, 2006 )
A beautiful, inspirational women and photographer
Wikipedia Encyclopedia       WIPI ARCHIVE Article 2003

"Light is my inspiration, my paint and brush. It is as vital as the model herself. Profoundly significant, it caresses the essential superlative curves and lines. Light I acknowledge as the energy upon which all life on this planet depends". Ruth Bernhard

  "You are a great inspiration"
RUTH BERNHARD, "Trees Walking" Santa Rosa, 1972

Born in Berlin on October 14, 1905, Ruth began her photographic career in 1928, one year after joining her artist father in New York City. She worked as a photographer's assistant for six months, and with $90 severance pay in her pocket, bought an 8x10 camera from a friend and struck out on her own. She was already an established commercial photographer in New York when her life took a dramatic turn in 1935, after a chance meeting with Edward Weston. "When I saw his work I was so deeply moved I cried. I hadn't realized there were photographers who were artists. read and see more
