Description

SOME 41 PHOTOGRAPHERS have their work featured in the book, ranging from the early photography of Eliza Scidmore to the modern, cutting edge photography of Jodi Cobb and her contemporaries. Women Photographers at National Geographic is a celebration. A trove of powerful, arresting, dramatic photojournalism and photographic art of the past hundred years, this superbly illustrated chronicle of National Geographic's long tradition of women photographers is a showcase of brilliant work. The book's approach combines the evolving history of women photographers at the Society along with running narrative - 35,000 words, including captions, highly anecdotal, on their daily lives and art. The narrative is in five thematic chapters. Between each chapter is a photographic essay featuring one prominent woman photographer in each of the following fields: Adventure: Maria Stenzel; Intimacy: Annie Griffiths Belt; Human Condition: Karen Kasmauski; Women on Women: Jodi Cobb; Across Cultures: Sisse Brimberg.
