Since the inception of photography as an art form nearly 200 years ago, women have played an important role in the development of the genre, often pushing boundaries and defying social convention. This comprehensive volume features 55 of the most important women photographers. Each artist is profiled in spreads featuring splendid reproductions of key works and an in-depth overview of her career and contributions to the art of photography. Biographical information and a contextual essay focusing on the impact of women in the history of the medium makes this an excellent illustrated reference.
