"I don't know who tells me this, but somebody said, that I'm the first woman that ever photographed a nude man. I was made fun of at that time, when I photographed in 1915, my husband nude on Mount Rainier. In that one that I personally called The Fawn, he actually was sitting on a cake of ice, on that little lake. He chose the spot, and it was very nice. Of course they were not acknowledged as being a nice ladylike job, I was condemned, by the newspaper, a well-known publishing company in Seattle, and they called me an immoral woman."
