'Photography 1948 – 2010: WOMAN' looks at the female as both a subject and object and explores the topic from male and female perspectives.

Bringing together three outstanding fashion photographers – Guy Bourdin, Deborah Turbeville and Lillian Bassman, who together over five decades altered the way fashion was shot and women portrayed – a narrative photographer, Thomas Zanon-Larcher, who embeds fashion within his images of women and Elina Brotherus whose nude studies of the female form place herself as model and subject at the centre of the photograph; added to this mix are two fine art photographers Stephen J Morgan whose images of the Madonna and female child invite contemplation and reflection and Annabel Elgar who studies the pre-adolescent ‘girl-woman’, while Susan Meiselas’ documentary material confronts with women as role players.
