PaJaMa

BIOGRAPHY

PaJaMa, an acronym for Paul-Jared-Margaret, was a collaboration between the artists Paul Cadmus, Jared French and Margaret French. Influenced by Carl Jung’s idea of the collective unconscious, these three artists known for their magical realism in other media collaborated in making photographs at the beaches of Fire Island, Provincetown and Nantucket as well as New York and New Jersey during the late 1930s through the early 1950s. They alternated as figures within the compositions, along with their friends, many of whom were figures in the New York art, dance, literary and theater worlds.
