Fotografe! Women Photographers, exhibition catalogue

Vintage prints, albums and negatives from the Alinari Archives spotlight more than forty female photographers, starting with early daguerreotypists of the 1840s, such as French photographer Bernardine Caroline Théodora Hirza Lejeune (Paris, 1824-1895). Other works featured include original prints by Julia Margaret Cameron, Dorothea Lange, Margaret Bourke-White, Lucia Moholy, Maria Mulas, Ketty La Rocca, Lisetta Carmi, Diane Arbus and Bettina Rheims. Their works are exhibited in conversation collections by Italian photographers such as Eleonora Agostini, Arianna Arcara, Francesca Catastini, Giulia Parlato, Roselena Ramistella, Alba Zari, as representatives of the emergent generation, whose exponents were born after 1980. They are carving their place in the field in recent years, both nationally and internationally, as they respond to and build upon Alinari's historical archive.
