Marilyn Sanders, a Los Angeles based photographer, developed her interest in the visual arts out of her training as an actress and a producer on documentary films. She is best known for her portraits of writers and artists. At the beginning of her career as a photographer, she supported her family with assignments from corporate clients. She then began to document the ways in which men's and women's roles had been affected by the women's movement, for example, in her WO-MEN WORKING and FATHERS series.
