===
American photographer Albert Arthur Allen worked during the 1920s, a time when the United States was open to artistic exploration. Allen s photographs of the Flapper Women, wore their hair in bobs, high heels, and not much else. Unbeknownst to him, Allen had taken on the stigmatized world of nudity and politics in art.

Allen lived and worked in California, having left behind a wealthy New England upbringing and becoming a hunchbacked victim of a motorcycle accident. Allen chose to live a life of obscurity, his work only known by a select group of clientele who purchased his photographs of comely young women, such as in the Chorus Line Prints.

Although this genre of photography was already considered academic in Europe, Allen s photographs were at best described as high camp. Despite the criticism, Allen maintained that his photographs conveyed human appeal, and that the true nude gives a version of beauty, both physical and spiritual the two great needs of humanity.

John Collier, Jr. was born in 1913, the youngest son of Lucy Wood Collier and John Collier, Sr. His father was a social activist who later served as the Commissioner of Indian Affairs from 1933 to 1945 and, because of this work, the family maintained ties to the area around Taos, New Mexico. In the 1930s, John Collier, Jr. established a home in this area.

In 1941 to 1943, Collier worked as a photographer with the Farm Securities Administration and the Office of War Information under Roy Stryker and documented many areas around the eastern U.S and northern New Mexico.

Walker Evans (November 3, 1903 – April 10, 1975) was an American photographer best known for his work for the Farm Security Administration (FSA) documenting the effects of the Great Depression.

Much of Evans’s work from the FSA period uses the large-format, 8×10-inch camera. He said that his goal as a photographer was to make pictures that are “literate, authoritative, transcendent”. Many of his works are in the permanent collections of museums and have been the subject of retrospectives at such institutions as The Metropolitan Museum of Art or George Eastman House.
