Women and the photobook: A pop-up library and rare book tour
About this event
This pop-up library, inspired by the recent publication, What They saw: Historical Photobooks by Women, 1843–1999, explores the diversity of photographic books created by women. Throughout history, the contributions of women to the field of photography have often been overlooked. Visit the pop-up library in Blackwell Hall showcasing a wide-ranging collection of historical and contemporary photobooks authored by women.
Show & Tell sessions
Join Philippa James for the Show & Tell sessions of rare books, many of which have remained unseen or under-recognised. This collection is a valuable resource for anyone seeking to expand their understanding and appreciation of the diverse perspectives and approaches that have been brought to the art of photography by women throughout history.
