What they saw : historical photobooks by Women, 1843–1999
“By presenting a geographically and ethnically diverse selection, this anthology interprets the concept of the photobook in the broadest possible sense. From classic hardbacks and portfolios to unpublished works, zines and scrapbooks, it documents well-known publications, such as Germaine Krull’s ‘Metal’ (1928) and ‘Diane Arbus: An Aperture Monograph’ (1972), and relatively unknown items, such as Eslanda Cardozo Goode Robeson’s ‘African Journey’ (1945) and Eiko Yamazawa’s ‘Far and Near’ (1962).
In addition, it addresses glaring gaps and omissions, including the lack of access, support and funding for photo books by non-Western women and women of colour.”
