Judy Dater is an American photographer. She is perhaps best
known for her photograph, Imogen and Twinka, featuring an elderly Imogen
Cunningham encountering Twinka Thiebaud nude, in the woods. Dater was born
in 1941, in Hollywood. She grew up in Los Angeles, and studied art there,
before moving to San Francisco to take a photography course with Jack
Welpott, whom she later married. In 1975, they published a joint work,
titled Women and Other Visions.
In 1964, Dater met Imogen Cunningham, whose life and work had greatly
inspired her. In 1979, three years after Cunningham's death, she published
Imogen Cunningham: A Portrait, containing interviews with many of
Cunningham's contemporaries, and photos by both Dater and Cunningham.
