Paul Outerbridge

(b New York, 15 Aug 1896; d Laguna Beach, CA, 17 Oct 1958).

American photographer. He studied at the Art Studentsí League in New York in 1915 and worked as a photographer for the army in 1917. In 1921 he attended the Clarence H. White School of Photography, where he worked assiduously on technique and was influenced by his teachers Arthur Wesley Dow and Max Weber. From 1922 he studied sculpture under Alexander Archipenko and by 1925 was in Paris, where he was introduced to Man Ray, Berenice Abbott, Marcel Duchamp and many other artists. Ide Collar (1922) was admired by Duchamp. Outerbridge held his first photographic exhibition in 1923 at the John Wanamaker Gallery, New York. In 1927 he unsuccessfully entered into a studio venture with Mason Siegal, then worked as an assistant film director in Berlin and London and returned to New York in 1929. In the 1920s he made platinum and silver bromide prints, and in the 1930s he practised black-and-white ink drawings.
