    Imogen and Twinka at Yosemite (1974) pictures the encounter of famed photographer Imogen Cunningham and model Twinka Thiebaud (the daughter of painter Wayne Thiebaud). Taken during a photographic workshop in the national park, Judy Dater was inspired by Thomas Hart Benton’s painting Persephone (1939), with its themes of nudity and voyeurism. Emerging as a photographer with the advent of the feminist movement, Dater has championed an approach to the body that avoids objectification.
