The Top 10 Women Photographers In History.

"For the first time in France, the exhibition Who’s Afraid of Women Photographers? will be at the Musée de l’Orangerie in the Tuileries Gardens in Paris from mid-October 2015 until January 24, 2016. According to the curators of this exhibit, ‘The governing ideology of ‘separate spheres’ in 19th century societies upheld more than ever that the public sphere, the creative arts and matters of intellect should be reserved for men, and the domestic sphere – reproduction and affairs of the heart, reserved for women.’ In light of this exhibit, meet 10 women photographers (all of whom are featured in this exhibition) who turned this statement on its head".

I would have loved to have seen the inclusion of Louise dahl Wolfe, Francis Mclaughlin Gill and Sarah Moon among many others if they had extended the timeline - Jon Lee
