An American artist born in 1930, Solomon has captured images of sweet, vulnerable humanity - the ones I feel most drawn to are those that show her sense of humor, that show the playful mind behind the eye. She has a vast library of work - many with subjects from nature. She portrays people living with AIDS, and the destitute. Her photography took her - and takes us - all over the world, examining, in her words, "how people face their struggles". I've excluded her more harrowing work, but it's out there to find. Her website is http://www.rosalindsolomon.com
