Evelyn Hofer was born in Marburg, Germany in 1922 and died in 2009 in Mexico City. In the years 
in between, Hofer created a body of work that both looked back to the tradition of August Sander
 and anticipated the color work of William Eggleston, causing her to be called "the most famous
 unknown photographer in America" by New York Times art critic Hilton Kramer – a devout
 supporter of her work.

Late in her life, when asked for her thoughts on being called "the most famous unknown 
photographer in America." she said she liked it. She understood that what mattered was 
the work, not personal fame.
