"My first nude photography was a self-portrait in the woods, 1906, on the University of Washington campus. I set it up and jumped into it, and that was it."
Imogen was born in Portland, Oregon, in 1883. When she was 18, she bought her first camera, a 4x5. But the story goes that she lost interest and sold it to a friend. When she was 23, she'd moved up to Seattle to attend the University of Washington. There she rekindled her joy of photography and took her first nude, serving as both photographer and model.
