I’ve been so fortunate in my career as a photographer to
have met and been able to photograph these wonderful women.
Their strength, beauty and courage has been an inspiration.
A Note About My Father: Maurice Seymour
Actually, there were two Maurice Seymours. The brothers Maurice Zeldman and Seymour Zeldman came to Chicago from Russia in 1920. After working for a few years for Bloom’s Studios in the State-Lake Building (“Bloom was the Maurice Seymour of his day,” says Maurice), they launched their own studio in 1929 atop the St. Clair Hotel (now called the Inn of Chicago) on Ohio Street.
