Starting in 1896, Ben-Yúsuf worked in several areas of photography–fine art, fashion, theater, celebrity portraiture, newspapers, and illustration–and also wrote magazine articles with photographic illustrations. In the art photography field, she rose quickly to the highest echelons in London and New York. ~Prints & Photographs Reading Room
