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.
