The Met – The New Women Behind the Camera

“The New Woman of the 1920s through the 1950s was a powerful expression of modernity, a global phenomenon that embodied an ideal of female empowerment based on real women making revolutionary changes in life and art. During this tumultuous period shaped by two world wars, women stood at the forefront of experimentation with the camera and produced invaluable visual testimony that reflects both their personal experiences and the extraordinary social and political transformations of the era.”

Art Movements Through Photography (History)

B&H Lecture by Eileen Rafferty, 2013

“Throughout Photographic History, there have been very different Art Movements, each with its own style and purpose. Through these Movements we find diverse photographic techniques, aesthetics and ideas offered. In this class, we will look at several Art Movements in the history of Photography, the photographers involved in each, and examine the visual style that pervaded each Movement. By studying these Art Movements and the photographers and artists who inspired them we can find a source for our own creativity and ideas for our own photographic work.”

How Do Photographs Reveal a History of Asian American Erasure? https://flip.it/A2Py8p

“A daguerreotype of a woman from the 1850s speaks to contested ideas of place, identity, and belonging—and offers urgent lessons for today.”

“The art historian Sarah Lewis writes that American citizenship has long been a project of vision and justice. The absence of photographs of the Chinese men and women who helped build California speaks to contested ideas of place, identity, and belonging that continue to shape our collective image of America today. The consequences of this erasure is clear: immigrants have experienced nearly a century of citizenship denied, and Asians who identify as American still live with a deep sense of not belonging. Though the Chinese Exclusion Act was officially repealed in 1943, when the US and China became World War II allies, stringent quotas for Chinese immigration remained in place until 1965. Many Gen X and millennial Asian Americans, myself included, are the first in their families born in America. How do we engage with the democratic ideals of American society when we don’t even see ourselves represented in it?”  – https://aperture.org/editorial/how-do-photographs-reveal-a-history-of-asian-american-erasure/
