Summary

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 Photographersis 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.

This is the second revision of her 1994 book, the award-winning A History of Women Photographers. She lives in Long Island City, New York.
