Judy Dater’s early interest in painting, drawing, film, and photography took her to UCLA where she majored in Art. At the age of 20 she moved north to finish her education at San Francisco State University. Here she embraced photography as her chosen medium, and used it to explore the Bohemian counter culture life that now surrounded her. This led to an enduring interest in photographing people from all walks of life, drawing on their humanity and soulfulness.

Dater has exhibited widely and has been the recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship and two National Endowment for the Arts Grants.
