Vintage Doris Ulmann photograph c1930
Doris Ullman photograph of John Jacob Niles playing the piano. Platinum print circa 1930. Ulmann was born in NYC in 1882, and died there in 1934. The J. Paul Getty museum biography notes that "she preserved the rural cultures of the southeastern United States through her photographs. She worked particularly in the "Southern Highlands" of the Appalachian Mountains, creating portraits of the residents. In 1933, she contributed photographs to Roll, Jordan, Roll, a book by novelist Julia Peterkin about the vanishing black culture, known as Gullah, of the South Carolina islands and coastal areas. In collaboration with musician, actor, and folklorist John Jacob Niles, she made what Niles called annual "folklore and photographic expeditions" to the Southern Highlands between 1928 and 1934. Ulmann's equipment was somewhat cumbersome and old-fashioned for her time. She most often used a 6 x 8 inch, tripod-mounted view camera, although the lightweight, hand-held camera was more prevalent, and she produced soft-focus platinum prints. The photograph measures 6" x 7.75", and is museum mounted in a walnut 14.5" x 16" frame. Shipping extra. Connecticut residents and buyers picking up in Connecticut add 6.35% state sales tax. Buyers outside the USA are responsible for any taxes,tariffs or customs that might apply. *** If you wish to see examples of similar items we have sold and/or appraised please go to our affiliate site www.OneofaKindAntiques.com and click the Archives / Homepage logo ***
