Judith Golden (American, 1934- )

Judith Golden studied at the Chicago Art Institute, in her hometown, and the University of California, Davis. Trained as a printmaker and painter, she has been at the forefront of critical thinking in photography. An early practitioner of hand coloring and assemblage, a pioneer of image appropriation and the "big picture," she championed feminist issues regarding the portrayal of women in the mass media. In her Ode to Hollywood, People Magazine and Chameleon series she combined photography and printmaking to create imaginative works based on popular myths and fantasies, frequently using herself as a model. Golden recently retired from teaching photography at the University of Arizona.
