'The How We See: Photobooks by Women' presents a global range of 21st-century photobooks by female photographers and now available for pre-order… just in time for the 'How We See Reading Room and talk at the New York Public Library' this October 2018. 100 Historical Photobooks by Women Photographers Included in the reading room publication for 'How We See' are ten lists
of historical photobooks by women photographers from 1843 to 2010. These
subjective lists (of ten books each) are provided by historians,
librarians, curators and writers in the photography and photobook field.
Historical selectors are: Sagrario Berti, Clara Bouveresse, Hinde Haest, Anne E. Havinga, Carole Naggar, Sayaka Takahashi, Barbara Tannenbaum, Jennifer Tobias, Stephanie H. Tung and the women on the 10×10 Photobooks team. Photographers included within the historical lists are: Diane ARBUS, Anna ATKINS, Barbara BRANDLI, Margaret BOURKE-WHITE, Claude CAHUN, Giesele FREUND, Miyako ISHIUCHI, Graciela ITURBIDE, Germaine KRULL, Helen LEVITT, Sally MANN, Mary Ellen MARK, Tina MODOTTI, Cindy SHERMAN, Hsin WANG, among others.With historical records establishing 19th-century British photographer Anna ATKINS’s 'Photographs of British Algae: Cyanotype Impressions (1843-1853)' as the first photobook, it is not surprising that women have consistently contributed to the rich history of photobook making.
10×10 Photobooks has organized 'How We See—a hands-on reading room',
'books on books' publication and series of public events—to explore the
distinctive content, design and intellectual attributes in photobooks
produced by women." (publisher's note)
Selectors for the 'How We See Reading Room' are: Ilgin Deniz Akseloğlu (Middle East), Delphine Bedel & Frédérique Destribats / Federica Chiocchetti (Western Europe), Iona Fergusson (South Asia & Australasia), Amanda Ling-Ning Lo (China & Taiwan), Lesley A. Martin (USA), Oluremi C. Onabanjo (Africa), Mariela Sancari (Latin America), Miwa Susuda (Japan) and Daria Tuminas (Eastern Europe).
The comprehensive 'How We See: Photobooks by Women' publication—with images and texts for all the photobooks in the project—is an invaluable reference and resource. In addition to all one hundred books in the reading room, the publication includes one hundred historical books by women photographers, an annotated chronology, and several essays on the history and practice of photobooks by women.
