Anne Brigman - Photographs - Songs of a Pagan | 1869 - 1950

  • Anne Brigman was born in Hawaii (1869 - 1950) and moved to California when she was sixteen years old. Trained as a painter, she turned to photography in 1902.
    Brigman was one of two original California members of the art photography group the Photo-Secession, founded by Alfred Steiglitz, and she was the only Western photographer to be made a Fellow of the group. Three issues of Camera Work featured her photographs, and the British Linked Ring society of photographers elected her a member. Around 1929, she moved to Long Beach in Southern California where she continued to photograph, focusing on a series of sand erosions. A year before her death in Eagle Rock, near Los Angeles in 1950, she published a book of her poems and photographs titled Songs of a Pagan.
    Her photographs are highly collected and included in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, the George Eastman House, and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
