Berenice, like Natalie Clifford Barney, lived in Ohio for a short time and spent the rest of her life abroad or different parts of the US. She died in Maine in 1991. Like Natalie as well, she never married. Unlike Natalie, she grew up poor with a single mother after her father abandoned them. He took all the children but Berenice.
She was a famous photographer, beginning her career under the tutelage of Man Ray in Paris. A very interesting video of an independent woman who you can tell was strong, stubborn and wise.
