Hella Hammid

We don’t know the story behind this month’s cover photo, which photographer Hella Hammid sent to us before her death in 1992. Hammid was born in Germany, taught photography at UCLA, and worked as a freelancer for Life, Ebony, and the New York Times. She contributed to the influential photography book The Family of Man, and her photographs have appeared on the cover of The Sun nineteen times.
