Emma Justine Farnsworth (1860-1952) was considered one of the top woman amateur photographer’s in the United States at the end of the 20th century. “In late 1897 her work comprised the second one-person exhibition to be seen at the Camera Club of New York, and a few years later her one Camera Notes gravure appeared.” (this image - Heimchen, was published in Camera Notes: January, 1900) At the Paris Exposition of 1900 her work was included in a special exhibition of American women photographers arranged by Frances Benjamin Johnston. By Farnsworth’s own account, she had by this time taken upwards of twenty-five medals in the United States, Canada, England, France, Germany, Italy, and India.” 1.
