JUDY DATER

Born in Hollywood, California and growing up in Los Angeles, Judy Dater’s father owned a movie theater, so movies became the prism through which she viewed the world and they had a profound influence on her photography. She was a part of the community of the west coast school of photography, primarily represented by the photographers Ansel Adams, Edward and Brett Weston, Wynn Bullock and Imogen Cunningham.

Her career has been long and varied, combining teaching, creating books, traveling abroad and conducting workshops, making prints, videos, and photographing continually.
