Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This jewel-like, clothbound volume is a photographic homage to woman in all her glorious diversity and mystery. From a rare image of a grinning Greta Garbo to the direct gaze of a young Guatemalan woman, Woman revels in the breadth of the human experience, with the feted and the nameless shoulder to shoulder. The work of dozens of immortal photographers—Henri Cartier-Bresson, Elliott Erwitt, Julia Margaret Cameron, Willy Ronis, Ruth Orkin, and many more—fills this volume with over 100 photos. These photographs embody the many moods of their subjects in a breadth of photographic styles, from sepia-tinged pictorialism to guilelessly modern. A book as captivating as its focus, this small but substantial package is virtually a history of the photographic medium vis--vis its timeless subject, and the perfect gift for anyone who is, knows, or loves a woman.

Book News Annotation:

Luscious photographs from warm sepia to the crispest color images depict women in many guises—in light and shadow; healthy and ill; weeping and joyful; famous and anonymous; idealized, feted, and cast aside (as the foreword, by Whoopi Goldberg, notes). The 120 images, which span the 20th century, are drawn from the private collection of editor Fetterman, a gallery owner based in Santa Monica, CA. It sounds like a coffee-table book but fits neatly in the hand.
