Abstract:
Dahl-Wolfe (1895-1989) is best-known as a fashion photographer, her photographic life encompassed a pattern of art and documentary ideas interwoven over a forty-year period. This thesis describes her early art influences and explores her photography career in regards to the historical and cultural developments from World War I through the 1950s. Dahl-Wolfe is compared with her contemporaries such as Consuelo Kanaga, Dorothea Lange, Edward Weston, Richard Avedon, and Henri Cartier-Bresson. The study reveals how Dahl-Wolfe's work reflects photography's evolution over a specific period and how traditional constructions affect the reception of commercial photographers. Conclusively, Dahl-Wolfe's oeuvre straddles such an array of constructed arenas that she virtually fell through the cracks and has been narrowly defined as a result of art historical definitions.
