Women seeing women




Women Seeing Women is a collection of portraits of women by women. It provides a complete overview of the history of women photography in the twentieth century. From Julia Margaret Cameron until Inze van Lamsweerde, this anthology includes more than one hundred years of women photographers. Focusing on four main themes – social reality, the family, the female body, and virtual reality – and ranging from art, fashion, and show business, it covers the entire spectrum of self-definition in front of the camera. As also elaborated on in the accompanying essay, women simply know women better than men. And so, eventually, what all these images have in common is not so much the recording of attraction to the other, but rather the attraction to the similar.
