Gertrude and Alice

Alice Austen (March 17, 1866–June 9, 1952): She became the first American woman known to work outside the studio, creating what we now know as street photography.

«In the final months of the nineteenth century, Alice Austen took a summer vacation in the Catskill Mountains, where she met Gertrude Tate, six years her junior — a vivacious dance instructor and kindergarten teacher from Brooklyn, who wore a wig over her buzz-cut hair and with whom Alice would spend the remaining fifty-three years of her life.»
