Frederick Sommer

Text from Wikipedia

Sommer, Frederick
American, 1905-1999

Frederick Sommer (September 7, 1905 - January 23, 1999), born in Angri, Italy, was an art photographer. Considered a master photographer, Sommer first experimented with photography later in his life at age 26 in 1931 after being diagnosed of tuberculosis only a year prior. He held a degree in Landscape Architecture from Cornell.

He was married to Frances Elisabeth Sommer (née Watson) who died 4 months after Frederick Sommer.

Aside from photography, Sommer was also an expert in architecture and art. He also produced many music scores purely for their visual aesthetic appeal, both as drawings and through photographic processes.

On November 18, 1940, Sommer became a naturalized citizen of the United States.
