Barbara Brooks Morgan, 1900-1992, is well known in the visual art and dance worlds for her penetrating photographic studies of American Modern dancers Martha Graham, Merce Cunningham, Erick Hawkins, Jose Limon, Doris Humphrey, and others. Her photomontage and light drawings rank among the classic experiments of modern American photographic art. Morgan’s drawings, prints, watercolors and paintings were exhibited widely in California in the 1920s, and in New York and Philadelphia in the 1930s. She became a photographer in 1935 to allow more time for raising her children, and subsequently resumed work in drawing, watercolor, and painting, as well which continued through the 1970s.
