Overview

Ranging from the early trailblazing images by the legendary Eliza Scidmore to the postmodern, experimental, and often astonishing work of Jodi Cobb and her contemporaries, here is a provocative celebration and resounding affirmation of the photographer's enduring art. Author Cathy Newman, a long-time colleague of many of the book's subjects, skillfully combines a succinct account of the evolving history of women photographers at the Society with a seamless, anecdote-rich narrative about the daily lives and artistic missions of some thirty-five photographers through time. A diverse series of photographs attests to the vitality and innovation that these award-winning women have brought to their respective fields. Photographic essays from five of today's most acclaimed photographers are:
  • Maria Stenzel in "The Art of Adventure"
  • Jodi Cobb in "Women on Women"
  • "Intimacy," with Annie Griffiths Belt
  • "Globe-trotting," featuring Sisse Brimberg
  • Karen Kasmauski in "The Human Condition"
    Featuring an authoritative and illuminating introduction by renowned art historian and author Naomi Rosenblum and a foreword by Tipper Gore, who has been on both sides of the camera as a leading lady of the United States and a former news photographer for a major Tennessee daily, Women Photographers at National Geographic is an empowering and timely tribute.

    About the Author:
    Cathy Newman, a senior staff writer for National Geographic magazine, has written on a range of topics, from the Shaker community and the English Channel "Chunnel" to the Pecos River and Lewis Carroll. The author of Perfume: The Art and Science of Scent, Newman has worked with Maria Stenzel, Jodi Cobb, Karen Kasmauski, and several other photographers featured in the book. She lives in Washington, D.C.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Displaying the level of excellence the National Geographic Society is renowned for, this publication pays tribute to approximately 40 women whose photographs have been an integral part of the organization for nearly a century. National Geographic senior staff writer Newman identifies Eliza Scidmore as the first woman to have a photograph in the magazine (in 1914), though it was another 40 years until Kathleen Revis was hired to be the first female staff photographer. Newman's enjoyable narrative reveals the dangers, loneliness, and dedication of these intrepid women, who travelered to far-flung regions to capture a fleeting moment. She describes their conflicted lives as they balance assignments that took them away from families, homes, and communities for long periods of time. Tipper Gore has written a foreword, and Naomi Rosenblum (A History of Women Photographers) provides the introduction. But it is the 144 photographs that attest to the place these women deserve in the history of photography. A fine choice for general and young adult collections.--Joan Levin, MLS, Chicago Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
