Synopsis: Beginning with the early figures, Julia Margaret Cameron and Gertrude Kasebier, the survey continues throughout the 1920s, 30s, and 40s with such international modernist artists as Bernice Abbott, Imogen Cunningham, Germaine Krull, Florence Henri, Tina Modotti, Dorothea Lange, Helen Levitt and Lee Miller. The contemporary section of the book is lauched by the work of Diane Arbus: it presents some 20 photographers who explored various photographic traditions in the 60s, 70s and 80s. Assembled from major public and private collections, the selection features newly discovered photographs as well as classic examples. The pictures include landscape, still life, the nude and portraiture, but documentary, architectural and fashion photography are here as well.

From Publishers Weekly: Assembled from public and private collections the world over, the extraordinary images presented in this volume reflect the work of 73 women photographers from the mid-19th century to the present. They range from such early Victorian pioneers as Lady Clementina Hawarden to the recent work of Cindy Sherman, reconstructing a virtual pantheon. As well as encompassing the photographs of important early figures in the art--Julia Margaret Cameron, Gertrude Kasebier--Sullivan ( The Nude ) pays considerable attention to international modernist artists (Berenice Abbott, Imogen Cunningham, Germaine Krull, Dorothea Lange). Each photographer is represented by several examples of her work, eliciting a gamut of emotions from the viewer--cerebral admiration in the case of Margaret Bourke-White's shots of technology; horror in reponse to Lee Miller's depiction of the liberated Dachau concentration camp. Another service rendered by the book is the unveiling of obscure practitioners, such as the innovative English portraitist Madame Yevonde. A perceptive essay by art historian Janis provides a provocative critical framework for all.
