Margarethe (Margaret) Gross was born in 1902 into a Jewish family in Dzieditz, near Cracow, in what was then Austria (now Poland). Her liberal upbringing led her to studying photography at the Institute of Graphic Arts and Research in Vienna, followed by apprenticeships in some of the leading Viennese studios of the 1920s including the prestigious Studio d’Ora, where she worked in the New Photography style, advertising, and fashion.
Jessie Tarbox Beals (1870 –1942), Canadian-born American photographer and photojournalist, was the first published female photojournalist in the United States and the first female night photographer. She documented Greenwich Village and the major figures and events of New York from the Victorian era up to the Depression.
