"Girl with Curlers, Los Angeles, 1949" by Ida Wyman ©

    Newer Older

    Resisting the detached cynicism that dominated much of American photography in the postwar era, Wyman expressed a sympathetic approach to her subjects. The often indistinguishable backdrops in her photographs have a universalizing effect on their inhabitants--at the same time documenting an America increasingly defined by its uniformity. Her photographs often focus on solitary figures--usually women or children--with an intimacy somewhat rare in urban images.
