A ground-breaking biography of Myra Albert Wiggins, the successful early 20th-century Oregon photographic artist with connections to Alfred Stieglitz and the Photo-Secession. Myra Wiggins (1869-1956) embodied the ideal of the ''new woman''--independent, energetic, and ambitious--as depicted by the Eastman Kodak Company's ''Kodak Girl'' and promoted as ''The Witchery of Kodakery.''

''It not only thoroughly chronicles the life of an important regional photographer, it also provides many insights into the development of fine art photography on the national and international level. The author also includes important information about other women photographers from Oregon (Lily White, Sarah Ladd, and Maud Ainsworth) for which there is no comprehensive published document.''
