From Aaron to Withington: Selections from Peter Palmquist’s Collection of Women Photographers

Thursday, April 22, 2010 to Saturday, June 26, 2010

Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library

This exhibition explores the photographs, rare books, and ephemera that photographer and scholar Peter Palmquist gathered to document and study the global history of women’s involvement with photography. Palmquist, who began collecting in 1971, sought out images by women who worked as amateur and commercial photographers, studio assistants, retouchers, colorists, photojournalists, or filmmakers. He compiled biographical files for more than 30,000 women from around the world and acquired photographs representing the work of nearly 2,000 women.
