Summary

This jewel-like, clothbound volume is a photographic homage to woman in all her glorious diversity and mystery. From a rare image of a grinning Greta Garbo to the direct gaze of a young Guatemalan woman, Woman revels in the breadth of the human experience, with the feted and the nameless shoulder to shoulder. The work of dozens of immortal photographers--Henri Cartier-Bresson, Elliott Erwitt, Julia Margaret Cameron, Willy Ronis, Ruth Orkin, and many more--fills this volume with over 100 photos. These photographs embody the many moods of their subjects in a breadth of photographic styles, from sepia-tinged pictorialism to guilelessly modern. A book as captivating as its focus, this small but substantial package is virtually a history of the photographic medium vis- -vis its timeless subject, and the perfect gift for anyone who is, knows, or loves a woman.
