History and the Day to Day: Documentary Photography by Dutch Women 1904-1953 / L’histoire et les jours : La photographie documentaire des Femmes NÉerlandaises 1904-1953
[Exhibition History and the Day to Day: Documentary Photography Dutch Women 1904-1953, Maison de la culture Côtes-des-Neiges, Montreal, September, 1999, during le Mois de la Photo à Montréal]
Five photographers from diverse eras are linked by a shared concern for the human condition. Each in her own way infuses the documentary tradition with an emphasis on personal implication with the subject and a subjective approach to the events being documented, be they private or public. The accompanying essay explores the effects the private sphere has had on the development of the genre.
Katharina Eleonore Behrend, Emmy Andriesse, Violette Cornelius, Eva Besnyö, Cobie Douma.
