Helen Marcus: Prolific Photographer of the Famous

From a New York Times obit by Sam Roberts headlined “Helen Marcus, Prolific Photographer of the Famous, Dies at 97”:

Helen Marcus, a late-blooming photographer whose evocative black-and-white portraits of literary figures and film and television personalities graced book jackets and magazine covers for decades, died in Manhattan.

Ms. Marcus’s photographs were disseminated in a wide variety of venues. Some were seen in annual corporate reports, and one was the model for an etching on a Swedish postage stamp honoring the Nobel Prize-winning novelist Toni Morrison. She also became a champion of her fellow professionals.
