Florence Vandamm: blog starts, exhibition to come

We at the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts have been investigating the early London career of British photographer Florence Vandamm, who worked in NYC from 1924 to her retirement in 1962.  We discovered that she opened her first studio in London in 1908.  This site has been very helpful at providing resources and links. 

The exhibition (Pioneering Poet of Light: Florence Vandamm & the Vandamm Studio) will open in mid-September and runs through the end of February.  Please visit. Click here:

We are blogging about Vandamm's work on the Library's  You can find them in he Vandamm channel or under my name.

Great to hear about this show and newly-discovered negatives from Faust.

Just been looking  at 800 plus Vandamm images currently on ebay including another study from Faust.

Do you have many photographs of Florence Vandamm herself either in the UK or in the US

taking photographs?

Looking forward to seeing show in New York in October
