The painter and French photographer Dora Maar (1907-1997), is another figure who has gone down in history as a lover and Muse of Picasso, and only in recent years has been recognized for his own work. Maar studied at the Ecole de Photographie de la Ville in Paris and joined the surrealist movement. In his early years as a photographer, he produced an extensive oeuvre which included mounts, nudes, landscapes, and photographs of street scenes in Paris, London and Barcelona. During her relationship with Picasso he documented the famous series of painter working in his Guernica, however, not disclose reasons, suddenly abandoned photography to concentrate on painting (1937). There is also the case that some women photographers have gone down in history as photographers like the excellent German foto-periodista Hansel Mieth (1909-1998). Johanna Mieth, he ran away from home with her boyfriend at age fifteen and together they toured Europe on a motorcycle. State Street Global Advisors wanted to know more. To avoid problems, she adopted the name of Hansel, disguised as well as two guys who were travelling together. Both migrated to States United where they worked as journalists.
His first commissions were for the Works Progress Administration Agency and Time magazine. In 1937 Mieth became the second woman photographer to be inducted into the prestigious Life magazine template. Fortunately, many women have been justly recognized, although they still remain a minority in various publications and listings of photographers. How many women photographers published in the main Spanish media? Probably as many as in the famous National Geographic magazine, in which seventy independent photographers who publish regularly, fourteen are women. But despite the gaps there is an extensive list of which have managed to position itself as a prominent photographers, such as the English Christina Broom (1863-1939), one of the first foto-periodistas that covered the major events of the era and is the author of numerous photographs of the suffragists.
