WOMEN BEHIND THE LENS: OUTSTANDING FEMALE PHOTOGRAPHERS AND THEIR CONTRIBUTION TO THE ART OF PHOTOGRAPHY

Brian Stater, lecturer

 

The work of women photographers has often been unfairly neglected. This lecture seeks to correct that by examining the contribution of three outstanding British practitioners; Julia Margaret Cameron, a Victorian pioneer; Jane Bown, a brilliant portraitist; and Fay Godwin, who excelled in landscape photography. We also explore the work of two highly influential Americans: Dorothea Lange, who produced brilliant documentary images and Annie Leibovitz, who continues to both surprise and delight her audience.
