Rosalind Solomon was another woman who came to photography in her thirties, encouraged by the late débuts of Eugène Atget and Julia Margaret Cameron. Solomon started taking pictures while working in Tokyo with an international living program. After experimenting, Solomon focused on dolls, and then people and today is known for her moving photos of regular folk from all over. When her subjects look at the camera they do so without flinching and the result is one of a sort of photographic honesty.
