Who’s Afraid of Women Photographers?
Date(s): Oct 13, 2015 – Jan 24, 2016
Location: 62 Rue de Lille, 75007 Paris, France
Based on new research and on the many histories of photography that over the last forty years have reassessed women’s extraordinary contribution to the growth of the medium, this exhibition and the accompanying publication are the first of this gender-based kind in France. This phenomenon is addressed through its manifestations both in Europe – chiefly in France, the UK and Germany – and in the United States, from the official invention of photography in 1839 up until 1945.Event Site
