Gertrude Käsebier

Gertrude Käsebier (May 18, 1852 – October 12, 1934) was an American photographer who was known for her images of motherhood and her portraits of Native Americans; her portraits of the Sioux focused more on the expression and individuality of the person than their costumes and customs. She helped establish the Women's Professional Photographers Association of America and promoted photography as a career for women. This photograph was taken in around 1900, when she was at the height of her career.
