    Linnea Eleanor “Bunny” Yeager is a pioneer woman photographer whose work you know but don’t. Those in the art world may be tempted by pass her by as she worked in the pin-up business. That’s right, a woman taking pictures of women for men…and in the 1950s no less. Yeager took some shots of a personal, patronizing kind as well: she was named “Prettiest Photographer in the World” by US Camera Magazine in 1953. (With competition from fellows like Weegee, I’m not quite sure how much of an honor this is) Likely the only professional photographer who has had her measurements reported by Celebrity Sleuth, she was also named one of the top ten women “Photographers of the Year” in 1959 by the Professional Photographers of America and has lived long enough to see her work exhibited in a retrospective at the Andy Warhol Museum last year. / Uncredited Photograph published in “Scamp” magazine 1957  [***]
