The definitive text on women in photography, now in an affordable paperback edition.
Women have had a special relationship with the camera since the advent of photographic technology in the mid-nineteenth century. Photographers celebrated women as their subjects, from intimate family portraits and fashion spreads to artistic photography and nude studies, including Man Ray s Violon d Ingres. Lesser known and lesser studied is the history of women photographers, who continue to make invaluable contributions to this flourishing art form.
