Women Photographers - expanded and updated introduction to great and famous women photographers from the 19th century to the present day, featuring landmark works by 60 artists alongside in-depth biographical reviews. Since the beginning of photography as an art form almost 200 years ago, women have played an important role in the development of the genre, often pushing boundaries and defying social conventions.

This comprehensive volume features 60 of the most important female and non-binary photographers—including, in this edition, Diane Arbus, Miho Kajioka, and Ming Smith.

Every artistic style and genre is represented here: moody portraits by Julia Margaret Cameron and Diane Arbus; very personal photos from Nan Goldin and Sally Mann; world-changing documentary photographs by Dorothea Lange and Berenice Abbot; everyday scenes from Lisette Model and Helen Levitt; fashion spreads from Lillian Bassman and Ellen von Unwerth.

Each artist is profiled in listings with reproductions of key works and an in-depth overview of career and contribution to the art of photography.

Biographical information and a contextual essay focusing on the influence of women in the history of the medium make this book an illustrated reference.

Author Boris Friedewald is an art historian, playwright and author of Bauhaus and Paul Klee: Life and Work (both by Prestel). He lives in Berlin.
