was born in 1930 in Highland Park, Illinois. She graduated from Goucher College in 1951 with a degree in Political Science. Following her graduation, she traveled to Belgium and France with The Experiment in International Living, an organization with which she remained closely associated for the next two decades. Solomon married and moved to Chattanooga, TN, in 1953 where she raised her two children. [...] In 1968 the Experiment sent Solomon to Tokyo, and it was there that she discovered photography. She began taking pictures with an Instamatic, expressing herself in a new way. A year later, she purchased a Nikkormat and set up her own darkroom.
I'm attracted to her work because of it's candid and spontaneous nature, the pathos of her subjects, and the beauty of the compositions that seem to teeter upon the thin line between controlled and uncontrolled, deliberate and accidental.
