Alice Austen was one of the first women photographers in this country to work outside the confines of a studio. She is best known as a documentary photographer - a style of photography unusual until the 20th century. With a natural instinct for photojournalism some 40 years before that word was coined, she saw the world with a clear eye and photographed the people and places in it, as they actually appeared.
