The New York Times art critic Hilton Kramer once aptly described Evelyn Hofer as ‘the most famous unknown photographer in America.’ Hofer was a prolific photographer whose work appeared in publications including LIFE, The New York Times Magazine, and Vogue.  Her work frequently illustrated literary travel writing and she was one of the first practitioners to adopt colour for fine art photography. In spite of this, Hofer has not been granted the attention afforded her male peers. –Iris Versey
