Biography Edith Watson
Edith Watson was born into an artistic and literary Connecticut family, and grew up in an atmosphere that encouraged professional accomplishment by women. Her sister Amelia Montague Watson (1856-1934) was a successful watercolor painter. Edith's photographs established her as one of the leading art photographers of her era, and she is most famous for her images of Canada. Many of the best of these photographs were published in book form in "Romantic Canada" (1922) with text authored by Edith's life companion, Victoria Hayward from Bermuda. They were friends of Wilfred Grenfell, who worked for many years with the people of Labrador, and Edith's photographs of that region's people and places are highly regarded.
