The Working Lives of Women Photographers
June 2005
Photo Editor: Jeanine Fijol
Two forthcoming books highlight the working methods of two pioneering photographers.

Working under Roy Stryker and for clients like LIFE and Standard Oil, Esther Bubley documented how Americans lived and worked between the 1930s and the 1960s. A new collection of her work, being published by Aperture, features unpublished contact sheets and an essay by Bonnie Yochelson, the scholar and curator whose previous books include Berenice Abbott: Changing New York, The Complete WPA Project.

Exposure, being published by Phaidon, looks at images taken by Mary Ellen Mark over her 40‑year career. In her text, Mark discusses the stories behind the images and shares details of her encounters with her subjects.
