Wall Street Journal Review: Women Photographers in 1920-1930s Paris at L. Parker Stephenson

Posted By Administration, Wednesday, July 31, 2013

Through August 2


Paris between the wars was a melting pot for artistic creation, and photography was often at the center of artistic explorations. This exhibition celebrates the work done by female artists at the time. The Wall Street Journal review is sharp to note that the makers involved in this exhibition used photography not only to make work, but to form their own identity. 

Henriette Theodora Marković arrived from Croatia and became Dora Maar; the Hungarian Rosza Klein used the name Rogi André; Lucy Renee Mathilde Schwob moved from the Atlantic port city of Nantes, France, to become Claude Cahun; Dora Philippine Kallmus checked in from Vienna as Madame D'Ora; and Bernice Abbott came from Ohio by way of Greenwich Village to adopt the French spelling of her first name, Berenice. Germaine Krull and Ilse Bing came from Germany, but kept their given names, as did Florence Henri from New York. All participated in the avant-garde hubbub that defined Paris at that time, and which is now memorialized in their work. -William Meyers
