A magnificently illustrated history showcasing the work of three hundred women photographers from all over the world, from the invention of the medium through to the present. 

Since the invention of the camera, women photographers have been key innovators in the medium and members of all major photography movements. These are artists who never stopped documenting, questioning, and transforming the world, breaking down social boundaries, challenging gender roles, and expressing their imagination and sexuality.

To capture the diversity of this global body of work, authors Luce Lebart and Marie Robert have invited 160 international women writers to contribute to this bold and beautifully illustrated manifesto.

Spanning from 1850 to the present day, and including images by Helen Levitt, Carrie Mae Weems, Hannah Höch, Sarah Moon, Eve Arnold, and Shirin Neshat, among many others, A World History of Women Photographers is an invaluable work of reference. 

Luce Lebart is a photography historian, curator, and correspondent for the Archive of Modern Conflict collection. She has been the director of the Canadian Institute of Photography and of the collections of the Société Franc¸aise de Photographie.

Marie Robert is chief curator at the Musée d’Orsay.
