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.
