    Studio portrait of actress Olga Ilić by Milan Jovanović, 1900
This picture is considered the first semi-nude photograph in Serbia. Olga Ilić, later Ilić-Hristilić (1880, Thessaloniki – 1945, Belgrade), was a famous Serbian actress. She was born the illegitimate daughter of Marija Gašparović and a Frenchman. Mother and daughter moved to Niš after Olga’s father had died. In Niš Olga started her acting career at the age of fourteen and pursued it as a travelling actress and playing at different theaters throughout the Balkans (e.g., Belgrade, Novi Sad, Leskovac, Niš, Skopje).

    Miss Sallie Currier, Houlgate, Normandy, 1912 by  Helen Messinger Murdoch
 Helen Messinger Murdoch (1862 – 1956) was a remarkable woman – one of the earliest colour photographers and one of the first female aviators.
Murdoch joined  The Royal Photographic Society in 1911, becoming a fellow of the society the following year. A frequent visitor to Europe she showed her work at a number of venues, including the Wigmore Street Gallery and the Halcyon Women’s Club. In October 1913 she gave a talk illustrated with her lantern slides to a packed meeting of the Royal Photographic Society.
Later that year, aged 51, Murdoch decided to embark on a round the world tour – the first woman photographer to undertake such a challenging journey. She travelled through France to Egypt and then on to Palestine, India, Burma, Ceylon, Hong Kong, China, Japan, the Philippines, Hawaii, Honolulu, San Francisco, San Diego and overland to Boston, arriving home in 1915.
