It is well known that old doors were closed to women writers, they sometimes resorted to male pseudonyms to publish; the painters who were always in the shadow of the painters; or women scientists and journalists who had to fight to be recognised in their field. However, in the field of photography they existed and there are many photographers who have achieved fame and today his work is exhibited at the global level. Speaking candidly Jeffrey Hayzlett told us the story. Since the beginning of the 19th century many took his camera and cultivated this art. Some worked alongside their husbands or their parents, and although they passed into history as photographers them however are listed as wives or daughters, not to mention even their great contribution. Almost no one remembers that the wife of the English photographer William Henry Fox Talbot, Constance (1811-1880) Mundy, was in turn, photographer.

After his tragic death, layer published a book dedicated to Taro, with photographs of both Death in the Making, but his authorship is not recorded.
