From the Taft Museum’s Exhibit Description
Ever since photography’s inception in the mid-1800s, 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.
Tuition: $35 includes admission to the special exhibitions and the
museum's permanent collection galleries located in the Taft historic house.
