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. Featuring more than 300 illustrations, A History of Women Photographers is the only comprehensive survey of women photographers from the age of the daguerreotype to the present day. In this edition, author Naomi Rosenblum expands the book's coverage to include additional photographers and fourteen new images. The text and the appendix of photographer biographies have been revised throughout, and Rosenblum also provides a new afterword, in which she evaluates the influence of rapidly changing digital technology on the field of photography and the standing of women photographers in the twenty-first century.
Over de auteur:
Naomi Rosenblum (1925) is the author of two landmark histories of photography: A World History of Photography (1984) and A History of Women Photographers (1994). Besides these she wrote dozens of seminal articles and essays. A World History of Photography, first published by Abbeyville Press in 1994 and now translated into French, Japanese, Polish, and Chinese, remains a standard textbook and invaluable reference for practitioners, critics, and historians of the medium.
