Description

Accompanying the National Gallery of Art exhibition The New Woman Behind the Camera, this groundbreaking, richly illustrated book looks at those "new women" who embraced the camera as a mode of expression and made a profound impact on the medium from the 1920s to the 1950s. Thematic chapters explore how diverse women emerged as a driving force in modern photography, bringing multiple perspectives to artistic experimentation, studio portraiture, fashion and advertising work, scenes of urban life, ethnography, and photojournalism.

Featuring work by more than 120 photographers, this volume expands the history of the medium by critically examining an international array of canonical and less well-known women photographers, from Berenice Abbott, Dorothea Lange, and Lola Ãlvarez Bravo to Germaine Krull, Tsuneko Sasamoto, and Homai Vyarawalla. Against the odds, these women produced invaluable visual testimony that reflects both their personal experiences and the extraordinary social and political transformations of the era.
