Sonja Bullaty was born on Oct. 17, 1923 into a Jewish family living in Prague, Czechoslovakia. In 1941, she was sent, first to the Lodz Ghetto, then to Auschwitz and finally to the Gross-Rosena concentration camps. After the war, she returned to Prague where she became an assistant to the photographer Josef Sudek. In 1947 she emigrated to New York, where she met the photographer Angel Lome, whom she married in 1951. She collaborated with her husband on six books of photographs and numerous magazine articles, while also working on her own projects. In 1997 she an Angel won the Orion Society's first Olivia Ladd Gilliam Award, honoring the role of the arts in nurturing ecological awareness. She died in New York on Oct. 5, 2000--just 12 days short of her 77th birthday.
