This book celebrates an international array of both historic and contemporary women photographers, whose important contributions to art and photography have provided a collective perspective on life, the self, the world, and each other. From well-known luminaries of the medium such as Diane Arbus, Margaret Bourke-White, Nan Goldin, Laura Gilpin, Dorothea Lange, Imogen Cunningham, Cindy Sherman, Tina Barney, and Annie Leibovitz, to far lesser-known figures, this book is not so much comprehensive as an ideal cross-section of those women whose images have shaped the way we view the world.
