Women and Photography: 1924-1965
Friday, May 6, 12:00 PM – 1:30 PM In pre-war Berlin and Paris, some young women who were part of the avant-garde movement were intrigued by the possibilities of a new new medium: photography. Unlike painting and sculpture, photography was full of new possibilities and still free of an established, male hierarchy. But the creative freedom these modern women were enjoying in Europe would soon be replaced by fascism. Some, including Lee Miller, would relocate to London, whereas others came to New York, where after the war, they would work for magazines before facing the realities of McCarthyism. Even though the groundbreaking work of these women still resonates today, only a few, like Berenice Abbott, would get some of the recognition they deserved in their lifetimes, others still remain in relative obscurity. Led by Art Historian Cliff TisdellTo register and receive the link, please click: Women and Photography
