Scope and Contents:
An interview of Judy Dater conducted 2000 June 2, by Paul Karlstrom, for the Archives of American Art,
The interview took place in Dater's home, Berkeley, California. Dater focuses on her experiences photographing the nude. Dater discusses the early influence on her of Thomas Hart Benton's "Persephone," a work that she says affected her on an emotional level; how voyeurism depicted informs "looking," a basic activity of the photographer and of many other artists; her collaboration with husband, Jack Welpott, working from the same nude model, and the differences in their objectives; her main interest is human energy, male or female; finding it easier to work with women; her feminism in connection with the subject of the nude and issues of power that arise.
Biographical / Historical:
Judy Dater (1941- ) is a photographer and photography model from Berkeley, California. Among Dater's best-known images is one of Imogen Cunningham photographing Twinka Thiebaud, Wayne Theibaud's daughter, at a field workshop in Yosemite. Dater also posed for Cunningham, Wynn Bullock, Ruth Bernhard, and, as a graduate student at San Francisco State University, her teacher and husband-to-be, Jack Welpott.

Biographical / Historical:
Roy De Forest (1930-2007) was a painter, sculptor, and educator in Port Costa, California. A notable figure in the funk art movement, he coined the term "nut art" to describe art that embraced humor and created a fantasy world.

Born in North Platte, Nebraska, Roy De Forest grew up in Yakima, Washington where he attended Yakima Junior College and graduated in 1950. He went on to study at the California School of Fine Arts (now San Francisco Art Institute) and San Francisco State College (now San Francisco State University). He taught at Yakima Junior College from 1958 to 1960 after graduating from San Francisco State College, and later taught at the University of California, Davis from 1965 until his retirement as professor emeritus in 1992.

De Forest's first solo exhibition was in 1955 at the East & West Gallery in San Francisco. From then until his death in 2007, he exhibited frequently, especially at the Allan Frumkin Gallery in New York and the Hansen Fuller Gallery in San Francisco.
