19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People
Camille Claudel, 24, in the studio, 1888, after Rodin

She'd been model, assistant, and lover to Rodin since age 19; she went on to a notable career as a sculptor herself. Here, she modeled for Andromeda (chained to a rock, prey to a sea monster) at age 24. But she's actually a woman in a studio.
