Ever since photography’s inception in the mid-19th century, women have forged pioneering paths for the medium. Come trace the influential role of women photographers over the past century through the work of artists such as pictorialist Gertrude Käsebier; modernists Margaret Bourke-White and Imogen Cunningham; Depression-era documentary photographers Dorothea Lange and Esther Bubley; post-World War II innovators Diane Arbus, Cindy Sherman, and Barbara Kruger; and contemporary photographers Carrie Mae Weems and Rineke Dijkstra. The approximately 100 photographic prints in Modern Women/Modern Vision honor women’s accomplishments in creating radically inventive images at each phase of modern history.
