With Maia-Mari Sutnik, first Curator Emeritus Photography, at the Art Gallery of Ontario. Following the development of photography in 1839, women of aspiration and renown contributed to this new foothold in the world of art. Women photographers such as Anna Atkins and Julia Margaret Cameron in early times, modernists Berenice Abbott and Tina Modotti and many contemporary figures such as Diane Arbus, Cindy Sherman, etc. challenged assumptions regarding the role of women in the arts. Photography as a powerful art form continues to shape contemporary developments in the visual arts today.
