Olive Cotton –
A photographer whose work straddles pictorialism, modernism and documentary, Cotton maintained an independent vision throughout her working life, based on the close observation of nature. Her understanding of the medium of photography was not to do with capture, but rather ‘drawing with light’. ( http://www.artgallery.nsw.gov.au/collection/works/174.2006/ )
