Introduction to GUP #29 - The Women Issue




Not that we have become fanatic feminists overnight, but supportive of affirmative action, GUP#29 has opted for a 'ladies only' issue this spring. Although dabbling in the fine arts was generally respectable among ladies of leisure in the 19th century, photography was seemingly one of the very few professions - along with such traditional occupations as nursing and teaching - to be considered socially acceptable. And so women have been on both sides of the camera since day one. GUP #29 serves as an exclusive, be it wide-angled view on the art of being feminine.
