By Emma Lewis


In ten thematic, chronological sections, Tate Modern curator Emma Lewis explores the vital role women artists have played in shaping the ever-evolving medium of photography. Lewis has compiled work from more than 200 different women and nonbinary photographers along with short essays on 75 different artists, many informed by her interviews with the subjects. From the studio portraiture of the late nineteenth century to the photojournalism of Dorothea Lange and Lee Miller in the early twentieth--and from second-wave feminist critiques of gender roles to contemporary selfies and social media personae--this volume examines different genres, styles, and approaches to photography from the 1800s to the present.
