Overview

Explore 35 of the most groundbreaking, creative female photographers in history and modern times! 

Ever since photography was invented almost 200 years ago, women have broken barriers and influenced the artform. Now, this first-ever children's book about women photographers tells the stories of 35 of the most talented historical and contemporary shutterbugs.

Filled with colorful illustrations, this book includes stories about Dorothea Lange’s haunting portraits of American history, Margaret Bourke-White’s bravery as the first female war correspondent in WWII, Florestine Perrault Collins’ influential images depicting Black life in the 1920s, and many more. Including explanations of key photography terms, photo project ideas, and suggestions for other women photographers to study, this charming book will inspire children to pick up a camera and make their own incredible photographs.

“It isn't easy to sum a life up in a few words, especially an extraordinary life, one whose arc reached from nowhere to everywhere. But Reed does an admirable job. These don't read like book reports. They read like sparkling little jewels that make you want to try them on.”

–Mike Pasini, Photo Corners
