Women and Photography: “More Work for the Ladies”


Collection Review


Wednesday, October 19


2:30pm




As both professional and amateur photographers, women played a role in photography from its very earliest days. Drawing on the Library Company’s strong photography collection and related material, attendees will have the opportunity to learn about nearly a century of female photographers and see examples of their work ranging from an early 1850s daguerreotype to photographic portraits coming out of a West Philadelphia studio in the first few decades of the 20th century.
