Concern about how women are represented, despite varied and often conflicting conceptions of feminism, is the underlying force in this collection. Eight critical essays grounded in feminist analysis explore the different issues that arise in these artists' visual representations, including social space, family life, child care, work, food, romance, sexuality, advertising, and consumer culture. They are feminist critics looking at feminist art, an act Diane Neumaier argues happens all too rarely as feminist critics have in the past busied themselves with critiquing dominant culture.
Together these artworks and essays explore the dynamics of visual images and ideology, including expressions and interpretations of autobiographical photographic projects, self-representation of women's bodies, conflicting identities, and the relationship between photographer and photographed.

From the Publisher:
A remarkable collection of feminist art-works and critical essays exposes the diverse cultural representations of women
From the Inside Flap:
"Reframings makes a tremendous contribution to the field of photography, art, and feminist theory. There is a definite need to reflect on the representation of women through the eyes of feminist artists and critics and probe issues in new and provocative ways-this book does just that. The multiple perspectives and voices of these women ensure an incredibly rich and diverse analysis of what is 'American' and what is 'feminism.'" —Constance Wolf, Associate Director, Whitney Museum of American Art

"This path breaking book unmasks a key artist movement long neglected by the photography establishment: the canonbusting contribution of feminist photographers over the past decade. Besides providing a comprehensive look at the seldom seen work of over 30 artists, this volume constitutes a major intervention into the discourse of photography criticism. Diane Neumaier and her stellar cast of critics and artists supply the missing pieces in the puzzle of postmodernism."

—Brian Wallis, contributing editor, Art in America

"This is an ambitious, exceptional book in its scope, breadth, and inclusiveness.... Neumaier does not shy away from the difficult questions that conflicting interpretations present. Instead she embraces a diversity of opinion and, at times, conflicting points of view to explore a wide range of American feminist issues and experiences." —Choice

"Providing visibility to feminist photographers and theorists, and emphasizing the interrelation of the two, Reframings expands the parameters of feminist discourse, while at the same time collecting a canon to which scholars might refer in the future." —afterimage
