In Real Life: Six Women Photographers The Lives And Works Of Imogene Cunningham, Dorothea Lange, Lola Alvarez Bravo, Carrie Mae Weems, Elsa Dorfman And Cindy Sherman Very easy read The profiles were simply short introductions, but they made me want to learnabout each photographer. While I did not realize it at first, this book is available in the YA section of my library It is simplistic, but parts of it are a decent introduction to photography for a young teen However I had never heard of two of the women photographers before, and I wonder how the authors made her selections It only took me about 1 1 2 hr to read through the book. This book was very short It wasnt one of my favorites I loved looking at the photos though Also seeing the pros and cons of being a women photographers I recommend this to the people who love photograpry. I guess a good short intro to the work and lives of these 6 artists, but I found Sills critiques to be over simplified and her writting style almost condescending. I actually had not heard of some of these women, which is unacceptable to me since I AM a woman and AM a photographer Not too in depth, but a nice overview. Great book Great leaders in the field of photographer Reading the bio of these amazing woman was inspiring
