  • 4. Alfred Stieglitz Wrote that Kasebier was “beyond dispute, the leading artistic portrait photographer of the day.” 1899 Monday, 29 November 2010
  • 5. Chief, 1901 Kasebier was fascinated by the culture of the native American people she saw in Buffalo Bill’s Wild West show. She was very sympathetic to their struggle and this is clear in the beautiful portraits she made of them. Monday, 29 November 2010
  • 6. Portrait of Auguste Rodin, 1905 • Kasebier traveled to Paris to photograph the reclusive artist • The portrait emphasises the artist’s distinctive profile • The soft focus effect was typical of her style • Photographers at this time often tried to make their images look like drawings or paintings Monday, 29 November 2010
  • 7. Yoked and Muzzled, 1915 Some people think this photograph is a reference to the artist’s unhappy marriage. Monday, 29 November 2010
  • 8. Cindy Sherman • Cindy Sherman was born in 1954 in New Jersey, USA. • Her reputation as an artist is for photographing herself, often in heavy disguise • She comments on contemporary issues, particularly the role of women in society Monday, 29 November 2010
  • 9. Untitled Film Still #14, 1978 Sherman’s Untitled Film Stills series explore the roles played by women in 1950s B movies. Often they are victims of crime or sex objects. Monday, 29 November 2010
  • 10. Untitled #132, 1984 Sherman’s photographs can be quite shocking. She uses heavy make-up and prosthetic body parts to radically alter her appearance. In this image, she has used dramatic lighting and bold colours to add an almost horror film quality to the photograph. Monday, 29 November 2010
