Hella Hammid

Hella Hammid, born Hella Hilde Heyman (15 July 1921 – 1 May 1992) was an American photographer whose career included teaching at UCLA. Her freelance photographs appeared in diverse publications including Life, Ebony, The Sun and The New York Times. Her softly backlit picture of two young Italian girls dancing, watched by other children in front of the abutments of a stone building, was chosen by Edward Steichen for his 1955 world-touring MoMA exhibition The Family of Man, which was seen by nine million visitors. Heyman married director and cinematographer Alexander Hammid (Alexandr Hackenschmied) in 1949 after his divorce in 1948 from Maya Deren (Eleanora Derenkowsky). The three worked together on Deren's films At Land (1944), Ritual in Transfigured Time (1946) and Invocation: Maya Deren (1987). In her early work as a cinematographer and actress, Heyman is sometimes also credited as Hella Hamon. From Wikipedia.
