About Doris Ulmann

Doris Ulmann, 1934

Doris Ulmann took thousands of photographs in Appalachia, creating the largest photographic record of the region.

Between 1927 and 1934 Ulmann photographed Appalachia to capture the character of people whom she admired, and feared were disappearing from the American scene.

Most of the images in our Appalachian exhibits were made by Ulmann during the summers of 1933-34. They are some of the over 3,100 images of people, crafts, and landscapes taken to illustrate Allen Eaton's landmark book on crafts of the southern highlands.
