The Allen Sisters.
Pictorial Photographers, 1885-1920.

Text by Suzanne Flynt and Naomi Rosenblum.
Pocumtuch Valley Memorial Assoc., Deefield, 2002. 192 pp., numerous black-and-white illustrations, 9x10½".

Sisters Mary and Frances Allen set themselves apart from other prominent fin-de-siecle women photographers in their pastoral, quotidian subject matter of New England country life. Presented as a collection of platinum prints, this clothbound exhibition catalogue accompanies a travelling show originating at the Memorial Hall Museum, in Deerfield, MA. Considered two of the foremost women photographers in America in their own time, the Allen sisters' photographs continue to resonate today with the timeless, romantic quality of their landscapes and portraits. Also of interest is the just-published Ambassadors of Progress, which reproduces the entire exhibit of 30 American women photographers, organized by Frances Benjamin Johnston, for the 1900 Universal Exposition in Paris.
