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 presents fifty-five of the most important women photographers such as Eve Arnold, Nan Goldin, Candida Hoefer, Dorothea Lange, Inge Morath, and Cindy Sherman. Each artist is profiled in spreads featuring splendid reproductions of their key works and in-depth overviews of their careers and contributions to photography. Biographical information for each subject and a contextual essay focusing on the impact of women in the history of the medium makes this an excellent illustrated reference.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Artistic styles range from the amazing (Anna Atkin's pioneering, mid-19th-century, camera-less botanical impressions) to the intriguing (Herlinde Koelbl's unexpected portraits of prominent Germmans)." --L. C. Dubon, The University of Toledo, Choice "This is an important book for the library of the photographic historian, as well as anyone who wishes to have a better appreciation of important women in the field." --Rangefinder "Would be an excellent gift for a female photographer. . . but it would also make a great addition to any photographer's reference library." --Photo Life Magazine "The book's strength is in the generous illustrations and succinct format." --Art Libraries Society of North America "The written profiles are informative and the photographs are beautiful." --Shauna Frischkorn, Millersville Univ., PA, Library Journal
