A big small small face?
This is the last post in the series about the effect of lady photographer.
“Ober, Lady Photographer.”
“He Didn’t Like the Photographs”
Ever feel misunderstood?
“LADY PHOTOGRAPHER LOCATES HERE”
This is the first of a four-part series.
“XMAS PHOTOGRAPHS Made by LADY PHOTOGRAPHERS”
Or so you can pronounce it correctly, bisarcipôltrônciônacciôsíssimô.
To start off this new blog, I thought I’d bring together a few of my interests, including language, data visualization, and the social history of photography.
As part of our Early Women Artisan Photographers (EWAP) project (the podcast is Photographs, Pistols & Parasols), I periodically browse through eBay looking for photographs taken by women who ran their own photography businesses between 1840 (pretty much the beginning of commercial photography) to 1930 (the first big peak of women as photographers in the U.S.). The other day I came across a cabinet card (out of our price range, unfortunately) by a studio run by two women in Spokane, Washington. The card was unusual (for that studio) in that it was an advertising card for a balloonist who was going to be performing locally.
