Painted Ladies Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the early twentieth century the postcard provided an immediate and direct form of communication—rather like text messaging today. Made by anonymous photographers and hand-colored by thousands of unknown women working in their studios, hand-tinted cards became one of the most popular of art forms. This extraordinary collection encompasses cards from throughout the world, including Africa and the Middle East, many raising issues of colonialism and exoticism. Painted Ladies provides a colorful and fascinating insight into the fashion, culture, and interests of the early twentieth century.

British-born Nick Hedges is a well-respected photographer in his own right. He has published a number of books of his own work and has exhibited widely.

Synopsis:

A stunning collection of hand coloured cards from the early decades of the 20th century.

About the Author

Born in Bromsgrove, Worcestershire, Nick Hedges studied photography at Birmingham College of Art. He subsequently worked in London for Shelter, the National Campaign for the Homeless as a photographer and researcher. After a period as a freelancer he returned to the Midlands to document factory work (published as 'Born to Work', 1982). He lectured on Photography at the University of Wolverhampton until 2002.
