Issue #26 / Happy / Inge Morath
The creation of the Mask series, with collaborator Saul
Steinberg, marks a singular moment in Morath's career. Personally,
the series was made at the time of her relocation to the US from
Europe, when she married and started a family with playwright
Arthur Miller. It was her first self-consciously artistic
statement, and it is the only large body of images in a fifty-year
long career in photojournalism that is conceptually motivated.
