Item Description

We learn so much about history growing up, but rarely do we learn about HER-story. Women are often left out of the story of major turning points despite playing some large roles. "Photography, A Feminist History. Gender Rights and Gender Roles on Both Sides of the Camera" is beautifully written by Emma Lewis and shed light on the roles women played in the history of photography.

In ten thematic, chronological sections, Tate Modern curator Emma Lewis explores the vital role women artists have played in shaping the ever-evolving medium of photography. Lewis has compiled work from more than 200 different women and nonbinary photographers along with short essays on 75 different artists, many informed by her interviews with the subjects. From the studio portraiture of the late nineteenth century to the photojournalism of Dorothea Lange and Lee Miller in the early twentieth--and from second-wave feminist critiques of gender roles to contemporary selfies and social media personae--this volume examines different genres, styles, and approaches to photography from the 1800s to the present.

This book is great for photographers, artists, students, and art lovers. Those who are looking to learn more about her-story and to celebrate the involvement of women.
