A 1954 photograph of Ruth Asawa

A black-and-white photograph of Ruth Asawa, in 1954, sitting in front of multiple sculptures she created in the 1940s. Ruth, who sits on the floor with her legs folded under her, is a petite Japanese-American woman wearing a loose cotton top and pants, her hair pulled back away from her face. The sculptures that hang around her are woven from delicate wire, which curves and bulges in loose organic forms.
