Women Photographers in 1920s – 1930s Paris
May 30 – August 2, 2013

L. Parker Stephenson Photographs is pleased to present an exhibition of specially selected vintage photographs by women photographers working in Paris in the 1920s and 1930s.

Following the end of World War I, Paris served as an international magnet for literary and artistic circles. The liberal city provided an atmosphere of unbridled freedom and possibility. Women, even more than men, were suddenly at liberty to flaunt historical conventions and embrace opportunities until then widely unavailable.

Female photographers were hired in advertising, established their own portrait studios, captured the industrial landscape, and documented nocturnal activities and street scenes from all heights. They were Modernists, Surrealists and documentarians. This exhibition presents the work of women who excelled in their fields within the medium and whose contributions paved the way for subsequent generations of artists.
