Our take

This month's bonus book is a wonderful anthology of works by women photographers from the medium's inception to the modern day. Men have been much more visible in photography, as in many other art fields, with few female photographers being widely known and recognised today. This book shows that from the medium's inception, women have been using and exploring photography to get to know and express themselves and the world around them. This is truly a collaborative manifesto giving a voice to women in art, with 160 women writers contributing to it and 300 women photographers represented in it.

Publisher's description

A magnificently illustrated showcase of the work of 300 women photographers from all over the world, from the invention of the medium to the dawn of the 21st century.

As in many fields of art history, the work of women photographers has often been overlooked, and few of their names are now widely recognized. However, women were closely involved in all major photography movements of the 19th and 20th centuries, and have used the camera as an extraordinary tool for emancipation and experimentation. These are artists who never stopped documenting, questioning and transforming the world, breaking down social boundaries, challenging gender roles and expressing their imagination and sexuality.

To capture the diversity of this global body of work, Luce Lebart and Marie Robert have invited 160 international women writers to contribute to this volume, which is a bold and beautifully illustrated manifesto as well as an invaluable work of reference.
