Blogging from A to Z Challenge: W is for…Margaret Watkins (#AtoZChallenge)
Welcome to my April 2020 Great and Powerful Blogging from A to Z Challenge!
Margaret Watkins (1884–1969) was a Canadian photographer who was “a photographer of portraits and landscapes, still lifes, street scenes and works of early advertising and commercial designs. ” (https://www.gallery.ca/collection/artist/margaret-watkins). “She lived a life of rebellion, rejection of tradition, and individual heroism; she never married, she was a successful career woman in a time when women stayed at home, and she exhibited eroticism and feminism in her art and writing.” (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Margaret_Watkins)
I love the photos I have seen of hers – her most famous image is The Kitchen Sink, literally just that. Reminds you that anything is fair game in photography – which is great, given that for the past month or two, photography at home has become all the rage! And now, here are a couple of her works in the public domain:
