This comprehensive, eye-opening 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. Women have made vital contributions to photography both as a profession and as an art form from the very beginning. In every aspect of the medium - portraiture, social and scientific documentation, advertising, photojournalism, personal expression - women have been highly active creators. Yet before the first edition of this ground-breaking book was published, in 1994, their achievements had long been overlooked.
With "A History of Women Photographers", Dr. Naomi Rosenblum (author of "A World History of Photography", which has become a standard reference) has helped set the record straight. Works by over 270 photographers are reproduced here, from Anna Atkins, Julia Margaret Cameron, and Genevieve-Elisabeth Francart Disderi to Tina Modotti, Lisette Model, Margaret Bourke-White, Louise Dahl-Wolfe, Cindy Sherman, and Annette Messager; nearly twenty are new to this edition. The thoroughly updated text provides an invitingly readable chronicle both of the women's careers and of the often-challenging contexts within which they worked. Many of these individuals had not previously received the sustained scholarly study needed to establish their importance to the field, and women photographers in general had consistently been stinted in photographic exhibitions, collections, and criticism until this invaluable book stimulated new interest in their work. Concluding the volume are densely detailed individual biographies and an extensive annotated bibliography, which have been updated and expanded for this edition. Also new to this edition is an Afterword in which Dr. Rosenblum reconsiders the role of feminism in women's photography and examines new artists working in non-Western countries, from Africa and Asia to the Middle East.
