Nina Leen born in Russia (probably between 1909 and 1914 although she kept her age a secret), Leen studied painting in Berlin. Before she emigrated to the United States in 1939, she had also lived in Italy and Switzerland. A self-taught photographer, the first photographs to be published in Life in April 1940 were of tortoises at the Bronx Zoo, taken with her Rolleiflex camera.  (died January 1, 1995)

Nina Leen fascination with the world viewed through a camera lens extends to both the human and animal kingdom. Born in Russia, Leen grew up in Germany, Italy, and Switzerland, where she achieved acclaim as an animal photographer. Upon first arriving in the USA in 1939, her reporter's eye led to a series of wryly amusing works for LIFE on the habits and rituals of her newly adopted homeland.

Nina Leen is easily one of my favorite LIFE photographers.  She was one of the first female photographers for LIFE and has a prolific body of work.   You've probably noticed I've featured her work ...
