A pause..

..for modern art. Photograph taken by Eve Arnold at the New York’s Museum of Modern Art, 1956 - image from here. Lately I have been looking at the work of female photographers. I came across this one the other day. I love the angles and the sense of space. I have been looking at Imogen Cunningham, Olive Cotton and Tina Modotti too. There is such a gap in my knowledge, and I want to discover more female photographers from the last few decades (I already know of and enjoy the work of many male photographers). I would love to hear any of your favourites :)

Great photo! I dont know many really current female photographers but you might like Olive Cotton, Dora Maar, Sirkka-Liisa Konttinen, Francesca Woodman? My all time favourite is SO not current but the timeless Julia Margaret Cameron.

Annie Leibovitz, Cindy Sherman are favourites and I'm an Olive fan too, the tea cup ballet is just gorgeous. All of the old Magnum photographers are amazing too.

Great photo!
