Woman distracted while writing on typewriter. Biederer Studio. Jacques Biederer (1887-1942), Charles Biederer (1892-1942). In 1908 Jacques Biederer, a Czech immigrant, moved to Paris and set up a photography studio. Jacques’ earliest known photographs are of nudes in classical poses which were typical of that era. Over time his compositions became more contemporary. He began to shoot outdoors and created photo-sets that told a simple story, such as a romantic couple cavorting in a park.
