In this fascinating view of women photographers working in Britain, obscured by time, fashion and the mere fact of being the ‘other observers’, Val Williams charts their course and illustrates their work with 100 stunning photographs, from the turn of the century to the 1980s.

From early documentary work of the First World War and photographs of London’s East End to Christina Broom’s flamboyant suffrage portraits; Vanessa Bell’s Charleston idyll of family life in her seemingly casual snapshots to Grace Robertson’s photojournalism for Picture Post; the surrealist portraiture of Madame Yevonde to Jo Spence’s contemporary questioning of self image: Val Williams examines this diverse inheritance in her much acclaimed photographic history.

Very good, minor marking to cover.
