Two museums pay tribute to photography’s early pioneering female voices.

This mammoth new exhibit is a tribute to photography’s pioneering female voices, from Lady Frances Jocelyn and Madame Yevonde to Dora Maar and Germaine Krull. Split chronologically across two museums (the Musée de l’Orangerie covers 1839-1919, the Musée d’Orsay 1918-1945), the curators aim to document the evolution of women’s involvement in the medium. Looking at the importance of such figures in driving specific technological and aesthetic advances, the exhibit also seamlessly blends in details of broader historical and social changes to great, informative effect.
