In Ruth Orkin’s “American Girl in Italy, 1951,” a woman eludes an urban wolf pack. Orkin (1921 – 1985) took candid shots of Europeans and New Yorkers, and documented the view from her Central Park West apartment window for three decades. She rode a bike from Los Angeles to the New York World’s Fair, then stayed in the city and became a photojournalist for numerous major magazines. Orkin took this signature image of an art student in Italy for a photographic story, “Don’t be Afraid to Travel Alone,” originally ran in “Cosmopolitan.”
Photographer Ruth Orkin was named one of “The Ten Top Women Photographers in the U.S.” in 1959 by Professional Photographers of America. As a photojournalist, her work appeared in Life, Look, and Ladies Home Journal. While raising her family, she photographed what she saw from her Central Park West apartment resulting in two published books. Her monograph, A Photo Journal, was published by Viking in 1981, and exhibitions and lecture tours followed. Orkin died in New York City in 1985.
