Who's Afraid of Women Photographers?
There is a persistent idea that photography, a mechanical/chemical tool for reproducing images, is simply a question of technical skill, and therefore "something for men". However, women have played a more important role in the history of this medium than their fellow women artists have in the field of the traditional fine arts.
For the first time in France, the exhibition Who’s Afraid of Women Photographers? presented at the Musée de l’Orangerie, tackles the first 80 years of this phenomenon, through its manifestations in France, Britain, Germany and the United States.
