"Who's afraid of women photographers? 1839-1919 « at the Orangerie Museum
Based on original researches as well as on many stories about photography which, for forty years, have reassessed the extraordinary contribution of women to the development of photography, the exhibition is the first of its kind in France. The phenomenon is treated from the official invention of the photograph in 1839 until the end of the First World War, through its manifestations in France, the UK and the US. From Anna Atkins, author of the first book illustrated with photographs, to Frances Benjamin Johnston and Christina Broom, pioneers of American and english photojournalism, more than 70 photographers are gathered around better-known artist figures.
Until the 25th January 2016. B.D.
