Since its inception in the first half of the nineteenth century, women have been active practitioners of the art and science of photography, carving out a space of their own within the History of Photography and thereby assuring the canonization of subject matter crucial to the lives of women. Works by various contemporary women photographers such as Judy Dater, Jeanne Dunning, Sophie Calle, Linda Connor, Susan Hefuna, Meridel Rubenstein, Cindy Sherman, Laurie Simmons, and Nan Goldin are included in this exhibition.
