Summary
This history of women's accomplishments in photography ranges around the world and throughout the entire history of the medium, from the mid-1800s to the present. Author Naomi Rosenblum explores the work of some 240 women photographers, from Anna Atkins, Julia Margaret Cameron, and Genevieve-Elisabeth Francart Disderi to Tina Modotti, Lisette Model, Margaret Bourke-White, Louise Dahl-Wolfe, Susan Meiselas, and Cindy Sherman. She chronicles both the women's creativity and the often-challenging contexts within which they worked. Many of these individuals have not previously received the sustained scholarly study needed to establish their importance to the field, and women photographers in general have long been stinted in photographic exhibitions, collections, and criticism, as Dr. Rosenblum makes clear. In addition to the text and photographs are detailed individual biographies and an annotated bibliography. All of this will make this work a valuable resource and should intensify the growing interest in these remarkable women and their work.--From publisher description
