This thorough and accessible introduction to the greatest women photographers from the 20th century to today features the most important works of 25 artists. Women have played an important role in the development of photography, often pushing boundaries and defying social convention. Through Women's Eyes showcases the most influential women photographers of the modern and contemporary eras: from Diane Arbus and Nan Goldin to Yoko Ono and Roni Horn, along with many others. The artists featured in this book offer us their own interpretations of the world, filtered through the camera, and show us what is worth looking at among the barrage of images that bombard us. Their strength is the ability to combine languages--not only photography, but elements of cinema and painting as well, resulting in a collection of views that encompass the human experience.
