Milton Inman was born in Chicago in 1899, Inman moved with his family to Los Angeles the same year. He graduated from the University of Southern California in 1920. He worked as a writer and photographer for several Los Angeles newspapers, and carried on a commercial photography business as well. Inman was a long time member of the Camera Pictorialists of Los Angeles and exhibited his photographs throughout the United States. He died in Pasadena in 1979. This online exhibition includes twelve examples of his work and was kindly provided by Carl Mautz Vintage Photographs.

For those interested in Californian pictorialism there is an excellent exhibition catalog on the subject:

Pictorialism in California: Photographs 1900-1940 With essays by Michael G. Wilson and Dennis Reed (The J. Paul Getty Museum, The Henry E. Huntington Library and Art Gallery, 1994). This is a catalog of exhibitions held at the J. Paul Getty Museum and the Huntington Library, Sept, 13 - Nov. 27, 1994.
