Women's Camera Work: Self/Body/Other in American Visual Culture (New Americanists)
by Judith Fryer Davidov
Publisher's Description
"Women's Camera Work explores the work of a group of women photographers working between the end of the nineteenth century and the beginning of the twentieth, including gertrude Käsebier, Imogen Cunningham, Dorothea Lange, and Laura Gilpin, among others. By critically examining both their work and their lives, Davidov's extensive text, closely reading photographs locates a middle ground of meaning where--whether pursuing landscape, documentary, or art--the photographers's images are as revealing of their own lives as anything they are encountering "out there." This approach, popular in contemporary culture studies discourse allows Davidov to more clearly establish the photographers's contributions. Heavily illustrated.
