Book by Wolf, Sylvia

From School Library Journal:

Grade 6 Up-Wolf looks at five women who have made unique, artistic contributions to the field of photography. A brief biographical sketch is accompanied by a portrait of the artist and a half dozen photos representative of her work. In the 19th century, Julia Margaret Cameron developed the Pictorialist photographic style by which she sought to express the emotion of her subject rather than simply replicating its image. Margaret Bourke-White gained renown for her compelling pictures of industry and of the human condition, in peace and at war, as well as for the photo essay, which was the backbone of Life magazine. Initially, for these women, photography was a means of earning money to supplement meager resources, while the three contemporary photographers, Flor Gardu?o, Sandy Skoglund, and Lorna Simpson, approached photography as an outgrowth of interest in other art forms. Gardu?o focuses on examples of Hispanic culture. Skoglund and Simpson both go beyond careful composition for their work in that they create entire settings for their subjects. In the Skoglund image titled "Spirituality in Flesh," the walls, floor, mannequin, and stool on which the latter is seated are covered with hamburger. In similar fashion, Simpson's exhibitions or installments depend on elaborate arrangements, often complete with music. The author's challenge to her readers to devise new interpretations of the photographs extends the use of this book beyond recognition of style. Libraries can use this title for the basic information and as a springboard for interpretive discussions of photography as an art form.
